Tales For A Winter Night - Storytellers Circle of Halifax

Storytellers Circle of Halifax presents

Tales for a Winter Night

Thursday, January 13, 7-8:30 pm

Upstairs (or downstairs?) at Just Us! Cafe
5896 Spring Garden Road, corner of Carleton
www.justuscoffee.com

With the New Year, we revive an old and

favourite theme, Tales for a Winter Night,

for winter darkness is the time for coming

together in the warmth of human company,

and passing the time sharing stories.


Come to hear stories of the fury of winter,

of the darkness, and the return of the light.

Or perhaps there will be stories of warmer

climates, to take the chill from your bones.

All welcome, to tell or to listen.

Anytime after 6:30; stories start at 7:00.
