The final event of the 2019 STORY Festival will be our Story dinner featuring Eric Hanson, anchor of KCCI-TV, and a graduate of the Roland-Story Schools; professional storyteller Will Stuck; and 102 year-old Dr. Frances Bartlett Kinne, who will be skyping into to share some of her stories of Story City.
The dinner, catered by Guys with Grills, will be held at the Story City Senior Citizens Center located at 503 Elm Street in Story City. The menu is grilled chicken, cheesy potatoes, lettuce salad, green beans with bacon and a dessert of cheese cake. At this time, we do not have a vegetarian option.
The dinner costs $40 per person and tickets need to be purchased by November 1. Dinner guests are invited to bring their own beverage of choice. Glassware will be provided. Tickets are available at the Bertha Bartlett Public Library.
The Story Festival, set for November 7-9, is coordinated by the Bertha Bartlett Public Library (BBPL) Foundation with all proceeds to help fund the library expansion project. The expansion will include the current Pete Tekippe Photography building located at 509 Broad Street, which the library will begin using in 2020.
The Story Festival, now in its 13th year, is taking on a new direction, encompassing local talent in a much greater way, while still bringing the educational expertise of professional storyteller Will Stuck from St. Joseph, Missouri to Story City. Stuck will be featured throughout the festival, offering multiple workshops and performances. This is an opportunity for our community to explore the various forms of storytelling, with something for everyone to enjoy. Many events are offered with a freewill donation collected to cover costs. This is made possible with the support of the Roland-Story School District Foundation and various Story City area sponsors.
