What a challenge!  The selection of 2020 Featured Tellers from our 2019 New Voices was daunting.  The stories we had heard and the performances we experienced were remarkable.

Our Festival Committee had to do it. Every year, since the creation of our New Voices event, we select our Featured Tellers from the prior year’s New Voices. The  Festival Committee selected Cooper Braun, Simon Brooks, Yasu Ishida and Paul Strickland from our 2019 phenomenal cast of New Voices.
