Stories Told Behind the Barn – 2/6 (WED)
Stories Told Behind the Barn with Bill Torrey
Wednesday, February 6th – 7pm (Rescheduled from Jan)
Join sixth generation Vermonter, woodsman, author and storyteller Bill Torrey for an entertaining evening as he shares true stories of his life growing up during the ‘60’s and his 40-year career working in the hills of Vermont.
Bill has won four Moth Story Slams in Burlington, three Extempo Competitions in Central Vermont, and New York’s North Country Public Radio’s Black Fly Story Slam. His first book, The Ta Ta Weenie Club, was released in the fall of 2016. His second book, Working Out of It, will be coming out in 2019.
“Bill Torrey is a storyteller too pure to be real and too funny to be believed. Spend a little time with him, though, and you realize he’s that one in a million person who has lived his life fully—felt it, loved it, and knows how to talk about it. Great storytellers and great stories don’t always find each other. With Bill Torrey, it’s a head-on collision.”
-Tom Bodett, author, humorist, radio guy
