“The Story of Storytelling”
With Isabell Monk O’Conner

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 – 7pm

Please Join us at this wonderful program with, professional actor and master Storyteller, Isabell Monk O’Connor.

For as long as humans have been able to speak we have been telling stories. We tell them through novels, poetry, paintings, and song. From prehistoric cave paintings that tell the story of their lives to the Grim brother’s fairytales, stories are what entertain and inform us. Isabell Monk O’Connor will share more about the history of storytelling and tell some wonderful stories as well.

The cost of the event is $2.00 for Non-RCHS Members/Free for Members. Pre-registration is not required but appreciated.

This event is held in the Rice County Historical Society’s Carlander Family Room. For more information about the even call the RCHS museum at 507-332-2121.
