An exclusive work shop, “The Lego Method of Tale Telling with Bil Lepp,” will take place on Feb. 10 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. The Lego Method of Tale Telling will reveal Bil’s personal process of combining several stories or snippets of varying length, and often diverse subject matter, into one relatively coherent, interlocking piece. This allows the teller to tell several short stories within the body of a larger tale without all the stops and starts. And, just as with Lego, the teller ends up with a solid structure that is built with pieces of different shapes, sizes and colors. The workshop is $15 for Alliance members or $20 for non-members.
These events are sponsored by Briers CPA.
