Louisville's Corn Island Storytelling Festival kicks off again this week at the University of Louisville's Belknap Campus.
The event is put on by U of L and the International Order of E.A.R.S., which was founded in 1985 to preserve the art form of storytelling.
U of L announced Monday that the university will house records and other materials from the storytelling festival. Corn Island was founded in 1976 by Lee and Joy Pennington. Some items from the collection will be on display on the first floor of the Ekstrom Library through October.
The storytelling begins at 7 p.m. EDT Friday in the Humanities Quadrangle in front of the library. The festival will kick off at 5 p.m. with children's activities. The public event is free.
