Regional storytellers, Rosann Kent, Hannah From and Debbie Weston also will perform.

Ellis was designated an American Masterpiece Touring Artist by the NEA. She grew up in the Appalachian Mountains and was a children’s librarian at Dallas Public Library before becoming a professional storyteller. The “Divine Miss E” is a versatile, riveting teller of Appalachian and Texas tales and stories of heroic American women, though her personal stories are arguably her best.

She is a repeated favorite at the National Storytelling Festival. For more, visit
