Speak Story Series coming Feb. 10

By Staff | Feb 6, 2015

The sixth Speak Story Series concert will feature Elizabeth Ellis of Dallas, Texas. Designated an American Masterpiece Touring Artist by the NEA, Elizabeth Ellis grew up in the Appalachian Mountains. A children’s librarian at Dallas Public Library before becoming a professional storyteller, the “Divine Miss E” is a versatile, riveting teller of Appalachian and Texas tales and stories of heroic American women, though her personal stories are arguably her best.

Invariably hilarious and poignant, she is a repeated favorite at the National Storytelling Festival. In 2013 the National Storytelling Network honored her with a Life Time Achievement Award. She has mesmerized nearly a million children in her thirty-five year career as a professional storyteller. Visit www.elizabethellis.com for more information.
