Storyteller shares ‘Tales Worth Telling’ at Astoria Library

Astoria Library.

ASTORIA — Local storyteller Jacquelin Denton presents a variety of tales, including an Appalachian folktale, a fractured fairytale and — as befits the season — something spooky at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Astoria Library, 450 10th St.

All ages are welcome, but the intended audience is older children, teens and adults.

Denton has been sharing stories for 20 years, most recently at the Washington Historical Society’s Time Travelers’ Ball, at weekly Washington County Public Library programs and in the Liberty Theatre’s Tennessee Williams production in August.
