Big Sandy Community and Technical College and the Mountain Arts Center will host the first-ever Night of Appalachian Storytelling at 6pm Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Gearheart Auditorium on the Prestonsburg campus of BSCTC. Tammy Ball, LCSW, professor of human services and division chair for social and behavioral sciences at BSCTC, is a member of the Kentucky Storytelling Association and came up with the idea of a local event after attending the association’s annual conference at Cumberland Park State Resort Park earlier this year. Storytellers participating in this event include Karen Dollinger, Ray Mendenhall, and Hillarie Spangler. Admission is $5 for adults and children under the age of 12 are free. The event is family friendly.
