But you’ll have to choose quickly, because there are only 25-30 seats in each. Pick your pleasure! We’re talking active, fun and exciting storytelling skills.  What’s more, there are three time slots to choose from starting at 9:00am on Saturday and running through Noon.  You can can even try your hand at more than one course.
