Ojai Storytelling Festival Starts Today


Donald Davis, Carmen Deedy, Diane Ferlatte, Michael Reno, Harrell, Bill Lemp, John McCutcheon and Motoko of Japan are just a few of the acclaimed storytellers who will be on hand this week at the 14th Annual Ojai Storytelling Festival.

With the Topa Topa peaks towering in the distance, downtown Ojai, California is said to be the perfect setting for three days of captivating performances for all ages that run from May 2 to May 5.

The Ventura County Star calls it a festival that has to be experienced to be believed. The experience, the paper said, "can't be conveyed."
