Storytelling listening party

Eric Eliason, co-author of the book “Warrior Ways: Explorations in Modern Military Folklore,” talks about his use of folklore during his time as a chaplain in the U.S. Army special forces.

Veterans, their spouses and interested residents gathered to listen to stories written or told by veterans at the Cultural Activities Center in Temple on Monday.

The Stories for Creative Forces Listening Party, hosted by Texas Folklife and VSA Texas, highlighted both written and spoken stories produced by local veterans and their families during storytelling workshops last weekend in Temple.
