The Walters Cultural Arts Center of Hillsboro presents the August Spoken Word event with “Tales to Howl at the Moon,” the Fourth Annual Neighborhood Storytelling Picnic featuring writer and master storyteller Anne Rutherford. All are invited with a session of stories and songs to this free evening of lounging on the lawn. Guests are invited to bring a blanket and a picnic and enjoy Rutherford’s creativity. The Walters Spoken Word series provides an opportunity for audiences to hear free lectures and presentations on topics ranging from ghost hunting and history to storytelling and outdoor adventures.
Rutherford will share her own version of Pacific Northwest folklore told by her alter ego Clementine Ryder (adventuress). Rutherford has been in the business of professional storytelling for over a decade. She is a teaching artist in the schools with Young Audiences of Oregon, and is a member of the Portland Storytellers Guild, the National Storytelling Network and the National Speakers Association. She is a two-time winner of the Liar’s Contest at the Northwest Folklife Festival. A native of Pennsylvania, she has been proud to call Oregon home since 1983.
