PORT ANGELES - The Story People of Clallam County has had to make a change in plans for its monthly Story Swap on Tuesday, March 21.
Victoria, B.C., storyteller Shirley Routliffe, slated to be the featured guest, has had to postpone her trip to Port Angeles due to illness.
In her stead will be two local tale-spinners well-known for their travels: Alice Susong and Ingrid Nixon.
The pair will offer their stories at 7 p.m. March 21 at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., where admission is free. The public is welcome at these swaps, which contain stories for adults and teens but not so much for young children.
Susong, who lives in Sequim, is known for tales of life with her national park ranger husband, Dunbar Susong, and their encounters with moose, elk, tourists and other wildlife.
Nixon, also of Sequim, has worked as a ranger in Alaska’s Denali National Park as well as an operator of an expedition tourism business. So she has stories of her own about traveling to Antarctica, Madagascar and Easter Island, among other remote spots.
Sussing and Nixon will be the featured tellers for the first half of the swap; then comes a refreshment break and time for other attendees to step up and tell their stories.
The nonprofit Story People of Clallam County group hosts these swaps on the third Tuesday of the month, along with other public events: the annual Liars’ Contest in June, the Forest Storytelling Festival in Port Angeles in October and, this year for the first time, the International Story Slam at Sequim’s Olympic Theatre Arts on May 18.
