CRYSTAL LAKE – “Once upon a time …” sets the stage for imagination at the fifth annual Tellebration Celebration from 7 to 8:30 p.m Nov. 17 at Prairieview Education Center, 2112 Behan Road.

The event is hosted by McHenry County Conservation District and McHenry County Storytelling Guild.

Six presenters – Joanne Knaack, Jerry Martin, Nancy Neckerman, Ben Rosenfield, Andy Talley and Carol Waxenberg – will spin yarns to satisfy all ages.

The audience will hear stories about nature, folklore and tall tales, and be a part of a worldwide event in which storytelling enthusiasts bond in spirit, telling stories at the same time on the same weekend.
