Tellers of Tales

FML Fall Festival of Storytelling


Robert Béla Wilhelm

Friday, September 30th @ 7pm


Master Storyteller, Robert Béla Wilhelm, returns home to Union County, having grown up in Garwood.  He earned his doctorate in Storytelling at Berkeley in California, and has traveled the world telling tales in the places where they were first told hundreds of years ago.

Come listen to these tales from the Pacific Northwest, Central Asia, Scotland, and the Middle East.  They are magical journeys to places long ago and far away.

We recommend that audience members include those 9 years old through adults.

Join us for a great Friday night evening by the fireplace. Please check our events calendar for other events in this series
