Today’s Genre Storytelling Extravaganza will feature 7 storytellers from various California story swap groups who are also members of the Storytelling Association of California.  They are past storytellers who have shared their 10-minute stories in the monthly Genre Storytelling Series hosted by SAC. You are in for a special treat as you hear a story from each of the following categories: personal stories, folk tales, spooky/scary stories, sacred stories, tall tales, myths/fables, and historical stories.
