John Hughes won our “First Love” Story Slam with his tale of giving a girl in sixth grade a friendship ring and what has happened since. John won our “tacky trophy” and earned a slot in our Grand Slam, which will take place in November. He is pictured here with our emcee Rebecca Schorr.
We heard several stories of romantic love – love which took place in school yards, in public parks, and in the woods. We heard about the love of a grandmother and the love of cheese. We heard about a first love lost for several different reasons and one love that has lasted over fifty years.
Our next Story Slam is scheduled for Wednesday, August 19th and the theme is Unbelievable! Reserve your seats by clicking HERE.
