Wilson’s World: Taking Us to the 18th Annual Patchwork Tales Storytelling Festival

ROCK HILL, S.C. – The 18th Annual Patchwork Tales Storytelling Festival began on Thursday, but there is still a lot going on through Saturday at locations throughout Rock Hill.  Wilson was at Rawlinson Road Middle School to give us a look at what the festival is all about.  Award winning storyteller Bobby Norfolk joined Wilson to give us a preview of his upcoming performance and talk more about the festival.

On Friday Bobby Norfolk and another award winning storyteller Connie Regan-Blake will be storytelling and performing for the kids at Rawlinson Road Middle School and Castle Heights Middle School.  Friday night the public can enjoy a free evening of memorable stories with both storytellers at Sullivan Middle School Auditorium.  The event is recommended for children over 7.  A certified American Sign Language interpreter will translate.  Doors open at 6:15pm. Admission and parking are both free, but be sure to arrive early for a good seat!

On Saturday at the York County Library the Patchwork Tales Family Showcase will highlight ‘Salsa Cinderella’ presented by the Grey Seal Puppets. The classic tale of love and footwear told with a spicy twist! No reservations are required, but there is limited seating.  The show starts at 11:00am.

The Patchwork Tales Storytelling Festival is funded by the York County Library and the Friends of the York County Library  and is returning back to the library after being away for a few years.
