A Story to Tell

The North Bend Library presents storyteller Michael McCarty on Thursday, June 24.

The performance will be live at 6 p.m. on Zoom. There will also be links for the show on the North Bend library webpage and Facebook page.

A storyteller for over thirty years, McCarty has performed around the world, entertaining audiences of all ages and in all venues, telling stories from a variety of cultures and histories that will shock and amaze. He also teaches storytelling to teachers, students and has worked with Arts in Corrections, a program from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and the California Arts Council. His concert venues include schools, board rooms, penitentiaries, libraries, festivals, and most recently, the 2021 Conference on World Affairs. His website is havemouthwillrunit.com.

McCarty is also the subject of Belonging in the USA: The Michael D. McCarty Story, an award-winning documentary the library will show on June 17.

McCarty’s performance is part of the NBPL’s summer reading program. The event is open to all ages and is child-friendly, but would most interest adults.
