Event Details

Adam Booth’s original stories blend traditional mountain folklore, music and an awareness of contemporary Appalachia. His work, both humorous and touching, is influenced by the rhythms and gestures of generations of diverse West Virginia storytellers and often features familiar tales disguised in Appalachian clothing.

His stories and recordings have been honored with a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor, Storytelling World Honors award, the National Storytelling Network’s J.J. Reneaux Mentorship grant, and four West Virginia Liars’ Contest wins. Booth teaches Appalachian studies at Shepherd University and is the founder of the monthly Speak Story Series in Shepherdstown.
