Story Story Night


This past December's Story Story Night theme, Going Home: Stories of Returning, drew one of the highest levels of attendance the Linen Building has ever seen. There wasn't even standing room.

Why? Because the live storytelling event consistently delivers heart, humor and insight, making it the rare sort of event that anyone can get on board with.

January's Story Story Night, Hooked: Stories of Cravings and Compulsions, will offer addiction-themed stories--everything from heroin to chapstick. Featured storytellers include BW Fiction 101 Third Place winner Elisabeth McKetta, Elizabeth Rodgers and Al Blank. As always, after the featured storytellers there will be a story slam during which audience members are drawn from a hat to tell their own five-minute stories.
