Storytelling (the folk art variety, not the "dog ate my homework" variety) is an ancient and enduring form of entertainment, and it's just as viable now as it ever was. Which is why Tellabration!, held the weekend before Thanksgiving, is not just an annual event but an international celebration. Asheville joins the global telling of tales for the 16th year with storytellers Sherry Lovett from Little Switzerland, Nancy Reeder from Franklin, Ed Sacco from Swannanoa, Wayne Sims of Black Mountain and Tim Lowery of Summerville, S.C. Tellabration! takes place at the Folk Art Center on Sunday, Nov. 20, 3-5 p.m. $5. http://www.southernhighlandguild.org.
