A Tales by the Sea concert and garden party will take place at a private home on Aug. 2. The title of the show is “Frontlines.”
The storytellers who will share tales at the event are Jeff Gere, host and director of Hawaii’s Talk Story Festival and recipient of the National Storytelling Network’s Oracle Award for Leadership and Service; Alton Chung from Oregon, a Japanese-Korean teller who received the J.J. Reneaux Emerging Artist Award by the National Storytelling Network in 2005; Susan Klein, featured teller at the National Storytelling Festival and Lyn Ford, a fourth-generation African-American teller and the first storyteller to be nominated for an Ohio Governor’s Award for the Arts.
The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. with an all-host garden party, which will be an organic, vegan repast with the tellers. The show will follow. After the conclusion of the show, there will be a gluten- and white sugar-free dessert. Admission is free, but RSVP is required.
