A lot of our favorite storytellers -- especially those who specialize in tall tales (we'd never say "lies," would we?) cut their teeth in regional liars contests; there's a big one in West Virginia, one in Texas, and one in Utah each April, sponsored by the Timpanogos Storytelling Institute. In today's Apple Seed Extra, enjoy a story by George McEwan -- a tall tale about cats, with which he won his sixth Utah Liars Contest. It was recorded back when people could all get together. We look forward to those times coming again.
