The lineup for the 2nd edition of Storytelling Southeast is an exciting and almost complete listing. Expect 70 events over the 5 days with a very international contingent of high profile guests; ranging from artists from France, Canada, USA, England, Scotland and Wales ...

We're also bringing the festival out to the community with many outdoor events on Saturday and Sunday taking place in the heart of the town. Those include a Brittany market, painting a street, workshops and a family Sunday. Saturday sees an outdoor music stage placed by The Lookout with an exciting list of acts lined up to entertain the masses.

Keep an eye on our news items; we've launched our very own book club for teens. Over the summer months teens are invited to read books by authors who will attend the festival in September.
