As 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.
