Timpanogos Storytelling Preview
STORYTELLING at the County Library

In partnership with Timpanogos Storytelling Festival

Enjoy a free preview of the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival at Thanksgiving Point. Listen to human time machine Tim Lowry and creative liar Anne Rutherford spin off-the-cuff ghost stories and tales of the American South.

Tim Lowry is a storyteller who carefully crafts and delivers tales with a seemingly off-the-cuff flair. Whether he's telling an American folk tale, a story from history or an anecdote from his own life, Tim is a human time machine.

Anne Rutherford is a deft hand at the art of lying creatively. A teller of tall tales, personal stories and original fiction performances, Anne can be found teaching workshops on the art of storytelling in the morning and performing in the evening.

The Big Play
The Big Play at the County Library

Playing is learning. Little ones and families learn through loud and messy play.

Jugar es aprender. Los pequeños y las familias aprenden a través del juego ruidoso y desorganizado.
