The Sautee Nacoochee Community Center welcomes national storyteller Elizabeth Ellis for an evening of stories at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 1.

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

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children.

While the event is family-friendly, the stories are appropriate for children ages 10 and older. All proceeds will go to children’s programming at the Center. For tickets, call 706-878-3300 or visit

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
