Storytelling Festival Returns

The Sierra Storytelling Festival has been going for 27 years  and people are still  hungry for stories.  Festival organizer Samantha Heinricks says it’s known as the Queen of Storytelling Festivals because they bring a wide spectrum of storytellers from all over the nation to the tree-shaded amphitheater stage.
