According to the National Storytelling Network, storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener’s imagination. We are honored to have these professional storytellers who have worked with Colonial Williamsburg come to Salubria for this ‘spook-tacular’ event where they will tell stories which will fright and delight the young and old alike:

- Gayle Turner has been telling stories since they were called lies. Appearing on stage for over 60 years, Gayle revels in sharing personal stories as well as tales from literature and history. He is the Executive Producer of The Storytellers Channel. Gayle currently has the honor of serving as President of the Virginia Storytelling Alliance.
