If there’s one thing we know in the South – aside from how to cook mind-blowing barbecue and biscuits – it’s storytelling. The tradition has been passed down through generations and is prized as an ability to weave tale for strangers and friends alike. Roswell is celebrating this talent by taking part in the worldwide Tellabration event, when four storytellers will wow audiences with their words. The tales will be family friendly, but geared toward an adult audience.
7:30 p.m. Nov. 17. Free. Chattahoochee Nature Center, 9135 Willeo Road, Roswell. 770-640-3253, visitroswellga.com.

Charity Warehouse Sale
Women’s and kids’ fashion line Mud Pie is hosting its annual charity warehouse sale, and the emphasis is on charity.

This year, Mud Pie has added a weekend day to the sale, giving shoppers a second day to find bargains among the selected women’s fashions, totes, accessories, kid’s apparel and the wide selection of home wares, all tagged to sell from $1.29 to $22. A few tips before you go: Cash and credit are accepted, but bring your own bags or boxes to cart home your finds. And be aware that there are some limits on the number of items individuals may purchase.
