RHINEBECK — Clinton Community Library is excited to present More Tales from the Hudson Valley, an evening of live storytelling for adults, on Saturday, March 21, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. at the Clinton Town Hall, 1215 Centre Road, Rhinebeck, NY. Four local storytellers from the Ancram Opera House will relate their experiences of adventure, humor, and life lessons.

Playwright Lauren Letellier, Hillsdale resident and press agent for the Ancram Opera House’s press agent, will host and tell a tale, along with storytellers Kat Collins from Hopewell Junction, Barbara Peduzzi from Chatham, and Mark Senak from Copake. Stories will include the challenges of a first job in retail, a volunteer effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, how an inverted pyramid comes to a point, and more.

“We are thrilled to work with Ancram Opera House for another storytelling event,” said Carol Bancroft, Library Director at Clinton Community Library. “Sharing our personal stories shows us that we are more alike than we are different. As we listen, we smile, laugh, cry, and empathize.”

A suggested donation of $10 at the door will benefit the Clinton Community Library. Guests are invited into the adjacent library for a reception with the storytellers following the program. The library wishes to thank the Ancram Opera House for its help in organizing this community event for a second year.
