Larry Castleberry is a storyteller, freelance voice actor, and narrator, based in Detroit, MI. He is very much involved in the Japanese martial art of Aikido as a student (he holds a 5th degree black belt) and as an instructor at St. Mary's of Redford Church (Detroit, MI) and the Ferndale Kulick Center (Ferndale, MI). In his storytelling, he intertwines the martial arts lessons of discipline, perseverance, and focus with lessons and experiences from his own life. He also tells stories from African, Japanese, and African-American traditions. As a kindergartener, Larry first fell in love with the power of storytelling. He has continued to channel his love for the craft through his involvement in Toastmasters (he is a 9-year member), the Park Players Theater group, and the Detroit Association of Black Storytellers. He loves to entertain, delight, and educate audiences through his unique blend of theatrics, baritone voice, and interaction with the audience.

The sponsor of Toledo's Tellabration! 2017 is the Frogtown Storytelling Guild. Sharing the spotlight with Larry Castleberry will be talented members of the Frogtown Storytelling Guild, which consists of Marion Hallauer, Glenda Garrison, Tari Miller, Regina Patrick, Odessa Rowan, Ken Solo, and Ken Wielfaert. The stories of the Frogtown Storytelling Guild members span the oral tradition: folktales, wisdom tales, legends, romantic sagas, humorous accounts, and personal narratives that explore the richness of the human condition.
