**Say It Through Story**
TALES Edmonton is a chapter of The Alberta League Encouraging Storytelling. We welcome anyone interested in storytelling - experienced or beginning tellers, or those who just want to listen. We host a regular Tellaround (story circle) on the second Wednesday of each month, September – June, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., at the Parkallen Community League, 6510 – 111 Street. (Ample parking available; the League building is accessible by bus #9: get off at 109 Street and 65 Avenue, then walk 2 blocks west.)
