The Jackson County Public Library in Sylva will host Sylva resident Curtis Blanton for an evening of storytelling and tall tales on Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Community Room.

Blanton is a Sylva native, born between Addie and Ochre Hill. A 1954 graduate of Sylva-Webster High School, he became a teacher and assistant principal at the school. He left the field of education and joined the Atomic Energy Commission in Oak Ridge, Tenn.
