Native Americans make some damn fine storytellers. I mean, when you go through the type of crap they have as a people, it's hard not to end up with a juicy tale or two. Choctaw author and storyteller Tim Tingle has told one such tale with Crossing Bok Chitto, the story of a young Choctaw girl who befriends a family of slaves. Sure, it sounds like heavy subject matter for a kid's book, but it will make your child think, which is more than you can say for Barney. Tim Tingle visits Barnes & Noble, 3909 S. Cooper St. in Arlington, Saturday at 2 p.m. to tell the story in person while accompanying himself on Native American flute and percussion. Call 817-557-1171.
