Each year the National Storytelling Festival brings well known storytellers from many diverse cultures together for a wonderful weekend of laughs and sighs, tears and warmth- reminding us that we are all a part of one human community.

The National Storytelling Festival has once again committed to making one of more performance spaces (and all of its tellers) accessible throughout the entire Festival by bringing two Nationally Certified ASL/ English Interpreters from Chicago- Joyce Cole and Liz Batlow Breslin. Joyce and Liz will bring their combined 50 years of interpreting experience and their genuine passion for storytelling to the Festival, and promise to make this Family Showcase an open and inviting place for all of our Deaf and Hard of Hearing audience members.

Please come join us for this inspiring weekend! the Festival will he held October 7-9 in historic Jonesborough, Tennessee. 

For more information about interpreted shows please call (800) 952-8392 extension 221 (voice) or visit our website at

We look forward to seeing you there!
