of Stamford, CT was the originator of Tellabration!
. He envisioned the event as a way of fostering and maintaining the art of storytelling. In 1988, he organized the first Tellabration!
concerts at six locations in the state of Connecticut. It was such a success that the Tellabration!
concerts spread to other states in following year. In 1990, Tellabration!
became a national event with the help of the National Storytelling Association. Its popularity continues to spread and now thousands of storytelling groups (including Frogtown Storytelling Guild) host Tellabration!
