I finally got a chance to visit The Storyteller's Cottage in Simsbury, Connecticut today. We just dropped by and were given a tour by a marvelous staff member whose name I didn't think to ask.
The Storyteller's Cottage is a venue for literary activities. It runs what you might call your traditional book events such as writing classes and author appearances. But it also does unique, outside-the-box things like mystery rooms and costume parties. Check out some of the things it's doing this summer.
The real eye-popper, though, was what I might call the Harry Popper suite. It's more than one room. I'm not even a Harry Potter fan, and I thought these rooms were marvelous.
As I said, we dropped in on this place. We were in town for Simsbury's Art Trail, an installation of 32 pieces of sculpture by Seward Johnson. One of my favorites was a statue of Monet painting.
