Ex Fabula Bilingual Story Slam: An MKE Big Read Event at Centennial Hall

Thursday, May 04, 2017 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Categories: Big Read, Author/Storyteller

Everyone has a story to tell! At this special bilingual Ex Fabula Story Slam, we explore themes of identity and self-discovery. The event is part of MKE Big Read In the Time of the Butterflies. See www.mpl.org/MKEBigRead for more details.·         Ex Fabula StorySlams strengthen community bonds by creating spaces where people can connect over true, personal stories. No props, no notes - just the elements of "Story. Stage. You". This StorySlam will feature stories related to the theme of "Courage". Doors open at 6:30 pm and stories start at 7 pm. You can come just to listen - or, if you have a story related to the night's theme and can share it in 5 minutes or less, throw your name in the hat for a chance to take the stage. Another way to share stories is via UltraShorts, which are brief, true personal stories written on slips of paper and then read onstage by the emcee.

Location: Complex: Auditorium, Loos, & Masters
