Featured Teller – Terry Rollins
Rollins grew up in rural North Carolina where stories were often shared
around the kitchen table and on the front porch. As a professional
storyteller for the past 30 years, he has continued to share stories and
folktales that carry you back in time to a simpler, less complicated place.
Terry lives in coastal Carolina, in the land of Blackbeard. He leads
the historic ghost walk in Washington, NC, the first town in America named
for George Washington. In addition to his love of pirate tales and
ghost stories, Terry enjoys sharing humorous stories and folktales with his
mischievous grin and mercurial energy! Terry is the Youth Services
Librarian at the Brown Library in historic Washington, NC.
