Renowned local storyteller Frank Jones will continue his monthly performances at the Faulkner County Library at 7 p.m. Feb. 1.
This on-going program meets every first Tuesday of the month and is free and open to the public.
February’s stories will be "My Hometown is Gone Forever", "Uncle Willie Halbrook of Scotland", and "Alfred Lord Tennyson lied to us!"
Jones is a retired Methodist minister and award-winning, fourth-generation storyteller. He has dedicated his life to sharing the culture, folklore, history and heritage of the Ozark people. He has presented his stories at local churches, schools, libraries and the Ozark Folk Center.
Jones has researched stories from the Ozark Mountains and tales of local lore to create presentations that captivate audiences both young and old. Jones said the uniquely southern historical stories simply find him. He spent 30 years telling Bible stories from the pulpit, and now he has turned his storytelling ability into preserving folklore and oral traditions.
