Nov. 19, 2013. Tellabration 2013 takes place at Blowing Rock Realty on Sunday, Nov. 24.
From 2 to 5 p.m., some of the region’s best storytellers will perform: Orville Hicks, Charlotte Ross, Glenn Bolick, Tammy Sanabria and Revonda Wolf. Admission, to go to the presenters, costs $5, and light refreshments will be available, too.
“To have Charlotte and Orville at the same time, that’s like a double whammy,” Sanabria said recently. “It’s just wonderful, and Glen is the hollering champion of the mountains. It’s a proven fact.”
Sanabria grew up on Beech Mountain and is also a Hicks. She said she would tell stories about growing up in the mountains.
Blowing Rock Realty is located at 1150 Main Street in Blowing Rock. Known as the Big White House, Sanabria described it as an old Victorian home that is “beautiful, gorgeous.”
Tellabration was founded by storyteller J.G. Pinkerton in Connecticut in 1988, and now operates under the umbrella of the National Storytelling Network.
Blowing Rock Realty sponsors the event.
