Cowboy Poet Tom Swearingen

Tom SwearingenAs part of the WCCLS Art of the Story storytelling festival, West Slope Library presents the cowboy poet Tom Swearingen telling It Happened Out West! The performance will be held at 6:30pm on Monday, April 4 at Raleigh Park Elementary School, located directly behind the library.

Swearingen shares a cowboy poet’s reflections and observations (and maybe a fabrication or two) spurred by people, places, and ponies of the American West. Some stories are humorous, others are serious, and all are entertaining. His Horses and Happiness CD is a two-time Western Music Association finalist for Cowboy Poetry CD of the Year.

This event is for ages 6 and up. No registration required.

The Art of the Story Festival features a total of 11 free storytelling performances at WCCLS member libraries, cultural arts centers, elementary schools, and recreation venues throughout Washington County. Visit the festival web page www.wccls.org/festival for details on individual public performance dates, times and venues.
