Storyteller Lyn Ford at Weaverville and Pack Memorial Libraries

From a press release:

“Affrilachian” storyteller Lyn Ford will be at two Buncombe County libraries on Saturday, September 28. First, she’ll be the Weaverville library at 11am to treat us to some traditional stories of the Southern Appalachians through the experience of our African American communities. Later that day at 3pm, Lyn will give a second performance at Pack Memorial Library with a special focus on stories for adults and older children.

A featured teller at the National Storytelling Festival, Lyn brings the stories to life with audience participation, song and a variety of voices. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be inspired! These free programs are sponsored by the Weaverville Library Friends and the Friends of Buncombe Libraries. For more information, call the Weaverville Library at 250-6482 or Pack Library at 250-4700 or email
