Three wonderful tellers will be the featured performers at the 2015 Iowa Storytelling Festival scheduled for July 24 and 25: Janice Del Negro of Brookfield, IL; Jeff Doyle of Brighton, MI; and Maureen Korte of Des Moines. Other visiting Iowa storytellers will also be performing at the festival’s Story Exchange.
The festival kicks off on Friday at 9 p.m. with the “Ghost Boat.” Our featured performers will share eerie stories on this cruise of the Lady of the Lake paddlewheel boat. This event is intended for ages ten through adult, and children under age 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets for the “Ghost Boat” are $15 and go on sale July 1. Advance purchase is recommended. Tickets are non-refundable. In case of threatening weather the ghost stories will be presented at the Lakeview Room
