WHAT IS A STORY THAT CHANGED YOUR LIFE, A STORY THAT YOU CARRY ALWAYS?
Perhaps it was the right book that someone gave you at just the right time. Perhaps it was a story told around a table by a loved one and then told and re-told. Perhaps it came to you through song, through art, through film.
On the evening of Wednesday, October 4 at 7:00 PM, five people connected to Maine, each well known in different ways, will give us a taste of their most vital stories, talk about why they have held onto them, and consider what these stories might give us for our collective future.
Stories That Move Me will be an authentic, dynamic, and broadly inclusive night of storytelling, a reminder of what makes us human. This special event will raise money for MWPA’s scholarships and fellowships, which support emerging writers and seed our next generation of storytellers, as well as free community programs and events like the Maine Lit Fest, which will return in the fall of 2024.
