Boot Camp logo

For the last three weeks, Pat Spalding, emcee of WSCA Portsmouth Community Radio’s monthly program True Tales Radio has work-shopped with a group of aspiring storytellers at Rye Public Library. The program culminates with an invitation to the public for the groups’ story telling night at the Library on Thursday January 29th.

That’s great information for every resident of Rye which is newly available to you free of charge via the Town Website.
