Bill_TorreyBill Torrey, Woodsman and Award-winning Storyteller

Sunday, September 4, 5:00 pm

Logger turned writer/storyteller Bill Torrey comes to the Norfolk Library for a special performance in conjunction with our September art exhibition Shedding Light on the Working Forest.  Bill is a sixth generation Vermonter who spent most of his life working alone in the woods. In 2013, he retired from logging with almost all his fingers and toes. During 2014 he began work as a writer and oral storyteller because he’s “never let fear and common sense stop him from doing stuff.” He has won four Moth Story Slams and three Extempo Competitions at Central Vermont’s premiere, live, true storytelling event, and has performed by invitation at the Flynn Theater, Middlebury College and the Vermont State House. This program is free and co-sponsored by Great Mountain Forest.
