Jonesboro - Day 4 and home

We left mid-day so that we could see the early morning story sessions. And have another chance to see Ben Haggerty, the wonderful teller from Great Britain. He told a wonderful rendition of "The Blue Deer" ( I am guessing at the title) a mythic tale with magic and shape-shifters - that ends as the origin of the "green man".

Excellent day for the drive and we shortened the trip comparing stories we had heard and talking about tellers, their skills and their tales. It was just the right way to close the week-end.
