Appalachian story teller comes to library

Storyteller Granny Sue will regale audiences with Appalachian folk tales and songs of old when she appears at the Fauquier county's public libraries this month. See "Granny Sue" under Special Events for the schedule.

Granny Sue, a West Virginia storyteller, tells and sings stories in the old-time front-porch style. She believes storytelling reminds us that we all share similar joys and heartaches, that we all make mistakes and learn from them, and that we need each other to survive.

Registration is no required for this free event, which is part of the library's Virginia Trails summer reading program sponsored by The Friends of the Fauquier Library.

Check out the library's selection of books and other items about Appalachia for children and adults and see items about storytelling.
