About Tulsa’s storytelling festival, Tapestry of Tales...
The second annual Tulsa Storytelling Festival will be April 17-18, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. and will feature some of the best national tellers in America. Reggie and Kim Harris, musicians and storytellers - Motoko, a Japanese teller - and Kevin Kling, a playwright and storyteller - all will be here for two evening "olios" (storytelling performances). We regret that Liz Weir will be unable to be here due to unforeseen problems with US Immigration.
