STORYTELLING ARTS' OLDEST EMERGING STORYTELLER
This Saturday, Storytelling Arts of Indiana celebrates its annual Ghost Stories at Crown Hill Cemetery with food trucks and scary stories. But as much as Sharon Gamble likes ghost stories, she was equally intrigued when Storytelling Arts announced that its newest recipient of the Frank & Katrina Basile Emerging Stories Fellowship is 88 years old! She invited this gent, Bob Zalkin, and Storytelling Arts' executive director Ellen Munds to -- well, tell us the story! You can hear Bob's story The Golden Land on Saturday, November 7th, at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center. But if Bob's story got you in the mood to hear storytellers even sooner, check out the organization's Ghost Stories at Crown Hill Cemetery with food trucks and scary stories...plus an optional RIP Reception with adult beverages.
