Timpanogos Storytelling Festival Opens

<I>The Storyteller</I> by James C. Christensen
<I>The Storyteller</I> has been the symbol of the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival since its founding in 1990.

By Dan Bammes

Salt Lake City, UT – The Timpanogos Storytelling Festival begins tonight in Orem. Through Saturday, some of the country's best-known storytellers will be holding listeners spellbound at the SCERA shell and Mount Timpanogos Park in Provo Canyon.
The festival was started by Karen Ashton, the wife of Word Perfect founder Alan Ashton, in 1990. Debbie Richan is one of its organizers this year -- and a storyteller herself. She spoke with KUER's Dan Bammes.
