Drawing from her own family lore and family history, Fanny Crawford will present an evening of storytelling on Tuesday, September 21 beginning at 7 PM at the Smithsburg Branch Library. Fanny Crawford is a locally-based professional storyteller who has performed throughout the region at historical societies and storytelling festivals. Her repertoire of stories includes historical narratives, folk tales, and tales from her own family's history, such as that of her own great-great grandfather who fled Hagerstown for freedom from enslavement in 1835.

This event is sponsored by the Smithsburg Historical Society. Learn more about the event here.
