Old-fashioned storytelling may be a dying art in the age of YouTube, but the organizers of the 11th annual Ojai Storytelling Festival don't intend to let it go down without a fight. For the last 10 years, they have convened in the picturesque valley town's intimate Libbey Bowl to host what has become one of the genre's most well-known festivals. There — in the shadow of the Topa Topa Mountains, the spring air redolent with the fragrance of orange blossoms — some of the world's most entertaining storytellers take to the stage to dazzle attendees with the oldest art form around.

The PROPOSED logo for this year's Ojai Storytelling Festival -- an old grandmother in a rocking chair relating a story to wide-eyed children at her feet -- didn't work for Brian Bemel, the festival's artistic director. "It's a stereotype that's so outdated," says Bemel. "Storytelling has somewhat of a renaissance going on right now with lots of new young faces in the community. People are hungry for this kind of entertainment." Expect to hear word weavers of all ages at the annual festival, which takes place at various times and locations today through Sunday.
