Bear Story Telling and Swap
In conjunction with the current exhibit, Bear In Mind: The Story of the California Grizzly, the History Museum of Sonoma County presents bear stories. Everybody has a bear story to tell and some are taller than others. A few storytellers from the Do Tell Story Swap group have been invited to tell some bear stories, then the rest of the program switches to the audience to share their bear stories. A fun-filled family activity for all ages.
The Do Tell Story Swap is a group that welcomes experienced and new storytellers to swap stories once a month in Santa Rosa. They swap old and new tales: myth, fairytale, hero journeys, personal relationships and experiences. They will tell bear tales for about 30 minutes.
In the second part of the program, names will be drawn from a hat for audience-storytellers (who have volunteered) to tell their bear stories. Each participant will be limited to 5 minutes.
General admission applies. Members and children 12 and under are free.
