Tom and Sandy Farley tell tales at Menlo Park Library on Dec. 10

by Contributed Content on December 6, 2016

On December 10 at 11:00 am, the Menlo Park Library will present a program of tales for adults by the tandem storytelling team of Tom and Sandy Farley, also known as Spontaneous Combustion.

Tandem storytelling is the art of two tellers performing one tale together. Since 1979, the Farleys have been telling traditional and contemporary tales for schools, libraries, book stores, hospitals, churches, summer camps, fairs, service clubs, corporate events, parties, and more. Their favorite themes include conflict resolution, youth empowerment, cultural diversity, disabilities, wisdom, and where stories come from. They are based in Redwood City, and they tell their tales throughout the Bay Area & beyond.

For their performance at the Menlo Park Library, the duo plans to share Tales of Wisdom, stories from many cultures, from original & traditional sources. The Farleys write, “None of us is so wise that we cannot learn from the wisdom and mistakes of others!”

Spontaneous Combustion’s performance of “Tales of Wisdom” is free to the public, and is supported by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. No preregistration is necessary to attend.
