Developed by The Story Center at Mid-Continent Public Library and the University of Missouri Extension Community Arts Program, State of Stories is a year-long series of free public programs commemorating the Missouri Bicentennial. Since August 2020, Missouri master storytellers have performed, presented workshops, and provided coaching sessions to help storytellers develop skills and techniques for researching and telling historical stories.

The performances at the state’s Bicentennial Celebration in Columbia on August 7 and at the State Fair on August 17 showcase those stories and their tellers. Storytellers for this session include Leslie Harris, Nancee and Mike Micham, and Ric Vice.
