Hunting Raven Books hosted an evening of storytelling as part of the second WBN celebrations: Sharon Jacksties, West Country professional story teller delighted an invited audience of Hunting Raven customers.

Sharon has been a professional teller of traditional stories for over twenty years, telling to adults and young audiences in all kinds of settings. Running a number of community storytelling projects has enabled her to collect fascinating stories from local people, and she has been researching Somerset stories for a number of years.

Somerset Folk Tales – a collection of these stories was published this week and is beautifully illustrated by Jem Dick. Atmospheric music was played on the flute by Jem to accompany Sharon’s story telling.

We have a limited amount of signed copies of Somerset Tales available at Hunting Raven.

Below are the enthusiastic WBN Givers who arrived at Hunting Raven to collect their
World Book Night boxes of books to distribute on Monday 23 April.
