The beauty of such evenings and of storytelling itself is that the author is also part of the audience and more importantly the audience becomes part of the author. It embraces the things we have in common and transcends all differences such as age, politics, race and sex. It can even begin friendships.
This a fun night of stories for the audience, told by folks like you. We are happy to celebrate three years in the Lehigh Valley.
This concluded our third year of story slam. We are going to do speciality shows June, July and August with the regular story slam beginning in September. Please stay tuned for further information. If you want to be part of our news letter send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org
