His performance is set from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13 at the library at 410 Siskiyou Blvd. There's no charge to see it.

Defty will offer some of his favorite tales that are "false on the outside, but true on the inside," according to library organizers.

Defty spent his childhood in Southern Oregon and is a children's librarian at the Eugene Public Library. He's been telling stories for 25 years.
