Thanks for mentioning the Storytelling Festival. However, much of the information in this article is not correct. It refers to last year’s festival. This year, the Third Annual San Diego Storytelling Festival will be held on Saturday, April 20 at the Encinitas Library from 10-6 (with the exception of a storytelling in business workshop, which begins at 9:30 and is open to anyone without prior registration, on a first come, first served basis.) The complete schedule and program is available at or call me at 858-484-1325.
