Los Altos Library Storytelling Festival

The inaugural Los Altos Library Storytelling Festival is scheduled 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 15 at the main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road.

Residents ages 4 years and up are invited to join local and national artists as they share folklore, fairy tales and other original stories via one of the world’s oldest art forms – oral storytelling.

Following an introduction by representatives of the Los Altos Library Commission and the Southbay Storytellers and Listeners network, Erica Lann-Clark, who hosts a storytelling radio show on KKUP Cupertino, will headline the first half of the event with her theatrical folklore stories.

A dozen other musicians, actors, artists and local residents are slated to present short stories throughout the afternoon. Spoken-word entertainer Willie Claflin, described as a “one-man festival,” is set to close out the event at 3 p.m. with historical tales accompanied by music.
