Story Slam: Welcoming Week Edition

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Have a "moving" story to share? Want to hear others' stories of departures and arrivals, stories about being in motion? Welcoming Week celebrates the stories of everyone in our community — those born here and those who came from afar. The Beaverton City Library Story Slam is a friendly, open-mic storytelling competition. Potential storytellers will put their names in a hat; names will be picked from the hat and those chosen will take to the stage to tell their true, personal, 5- to 8-minute story. Come put your name in the hat to tell a story or just to enjoy the show! Stories must be told from memory. The winner receives a $10 gift certificate to The Book Corner. This program is free and open to the public; recommended for ages 13 and up. Potential storytellers should arrive 15 minutes early to speak with the event host about their planned story.
