Gather Round: Honey Moon Story Hour

Come join us at Gather Round, a new monthly forum for people who love a good story. We had such a great time last month and we're excited to see you all again! The theme for this edition is "Felix Culpa, or Blessings In Disguise."

If you weren't with us last time, here's the scoop: Gather Round is inspired by The Moth, the New York based non-profit dedicated to "true stories told live." We believe that nothing binds a community together like shared stories. Our format is open mic: prospective tellers prepare a story based on the evening’s theme and submit their names before the show starts. Our rules are simple: 

1. Stories must be true and personal, that is, they must relate something that actually happened to the teller. 
2. Stories must be told, not read -- they must be performed without notes.
3. Stories last approximately 5-8 minutes. 

We're committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for all sorts of stories to be shared. Funny stories, sad stories, stories about small triumphs or epic defeats; stories about friends, about families, about the search for love or justice; stories about the human condition and how we cope with it on any given day. 

This month we're thinking especially about those moments when all seems lost -- but sometimes that very lostness reveals a beauty or benefit beyond our wildest imagining. Have you ever experienced a Felix Culpa? We'd love to hear about it!

See you on March 28th--
