The Tellers: We are pleased to announce the tellers for the 2013 Bay Area Storytelling Festival! Award- winning storyteller and NPR commentator Kevin Kling tells hilarious, often tender stories. Megan Wells seeks the story eclipse when the ordinary world gives way to the light of the imagination. When Len Cabral tells stories, coyotes turn into ducks and we travel from Ethiopia to New England cranberry bogs. Yvette Brandy weaves stories and songs, and Will Hornyak promises to captivate, surprise and intrigue.

The Festival: Oral storytelling is an art for all ages, from the cutest kids and the hippest adults through the wisest grandparents. Every year, the festival offers a school study trip and a professional storytelling workshop on Friday. Saturday and Sunday we offer several performances for adults, a family program and more workshops. We offered our first story slam in 2012, and look forward to continuing this new tradition.

Mission Statement: The Bay Area Storytelling Festival promotes the timeless, contemporary art of storytelling by presenting todays finest talents. The festival showcases the power of stories to bridge generations, celebrate diverse cultures, and build and connect communities.

Location:The Bay Area Storytelling Festival takes place on the edge of San Francisco Bay, at the award-winning, historic Craneway Pavilion - Conference Center. The Ford Assembly  complex is also home of the  Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park.
