Keynote Storyteller- Adam Booth

Our keynote for the conference was professional storyteller, Adam Booth, from Shepherdstown, WV.  Some good observations about storytelling and how to use it in museum settings were shared that resonated with the keys to what makes good interpretation. Then it was off to a variety of sessions on research, case studies and tools for living history museums.

The paper airplanes contained our collective knowledge about the ballad Barbry Allen. A kind of archive of community knowledge, much like stories.
