Bil Lepp as Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center

July 14, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Bil Lepp is an internationally-known storyteller, author, and recording artist whose style has been described as a satisfying blend of Bob Newhart and Jeff Foxworthy. A five-time champion of the West Virginia Liars’ Contest, his outrageous tall-tales and witty stories are a signature of his repertoire. Lepp has been featured at venues across the nation, including the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and a recent appearance for Comedy Central. He is the recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award, and his picture book, The King of Little Things, won a Parent’s Choice Gold Award and the PEN/Steven Kroll Award for Picture Book Writing. “When [he] wraps up his story in one more burst of implausibility, the audience leaps to its feet, cheering.” – The Dallas Morning News
