Not only does the La Crosse Storytelling Festival get great international tellers, we now have a teller who is on the History Channel. Bil Lepp is the host of the History Channel’s new show “Man vs History”. “Man vs. History” is a new HISTORY® Channel series that follows acclaimed storyteller and local historian Bil Lepp as he travels off the beaten path across the country to discover the truth behind mysteries and legends of American history. Each episode sees Bil investigate, decode and debunk iconic subjects and figures like Billy the Kid, Johnny Appleseed, Davy Crockett, Houdini and more. Whether speaking to experts, handling artifacts or testing historical weapons, Bil will work to determine if the story in question was fact, fiction or somewhere in-between. The series premiers July 20–just before our FEST! You have got to come to the FEST to see this great storyteller!
