Storyteller Presents Summer Concert
Cedar Rapids - Cedar Rapids storyteller Darrin Crow will present Stories for a Summer Sunset: Tales for Very Warm Weather on Thursday August 4th at 7:00pm in the auditorium at Cedar Valley Bible Church, 3636 Cottage Grove Avenue SE. Donations will be accepted for admission. The concert will cap off a busy summer of telling stories at Eastern Iowa libraries, day camps, senior living centers and other venues. Stories for the first half of the evening will be drawn from sources around the world including Ireland, China, India, Bohemia, and the southern United States. The second half of the evening will feature the Iowa history story, City of Refuge: From Holland to Home. The story traces the journey of the settlers of Pella, Iowa, from Holland across the ocean and the prairies to Pella, their “City of Refuge.” The story was created for this spring’s Heartland Storytelling Festival at the Homestead National Monument in Beatrice, Nebraska, where Crow was a featured storyteller.
