Bynum, NC - Enjoy an evening of storytelling in a charming town and venue. You will have the opportunity to hear a variety of storytelling styles and stories at the Bynum General Store on May 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. Come early for a walk along the Haw River and a stroll about Bynum's mill village.

Louise Omoto Kessel will host the event. A long time resident of Chatham County, Louise is pleased to be performing in her old "home town" of Bynum. Louise tells traditional and contemporary stories from a variety of sources, including her own Japanese-Buddhist/Russian- Jewish family background.

Bill Friedman will treat us to some of his amazing and wonderful original stories, many rooted in his experiences growing up Jewish in Mobile Alabama. Bill's stories are an artful mix of funny, intimate, and wise. They will take you from high school football practice to a grandfathers death bed, from Jewish summer camp to an unforgetable MLK day celebration, and way beyond.

Garry Lipson is a high school construction teacher and track coach that took a storytelling class with Louise MANY years ago and rocked the house at their recital with a hilarious personal experience story. Look forward to a rare public performance from a fine storyteller!

Although this program is not intended for children, young people ages 10 and up would likely enjoy the program.
