FARMINGTON — Jo Radner, folklorist, storyteller, writer and oral historian, will introduce experienced tellers at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 8, at Farmington Public Library.

The storytellers will offer a variety of stories drawn from daily life that can inspire memories: a tale about saving a man from going to jail for speeding; another about how a childhood outhouse taught propriety and courage; an epic account of losing and finding a shopping cart; a moving story about discovering the secret of one’s own origins; an account of a daughter who finally overcame her domestic disabilities; and more.

Audience members can share their own memories, if they wish. The event is sponsored by Western Maine Storytelling.

For more information call 645-2982.
