Story Slam on Fri., Sept. 15

The Jesup Memorial Library’s next Words Unleashed! Story Slam is on Friday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. and the theme is “small potatoes.” Whether you tell a story about literal potatoes or not, we want to hear your true, first-person stories about “small potatoes.”

Those familiar with “The Moth” broadcast on NPR will recognize the format. These are true stories told live.  Stories must be your own and told in the first person. Stories should be no more than five minutes long. Come to share, listen or cheer on the story tellers. At the end of each slam, the theme of the next slam is chosen by the audience.

Jesup hosts Words Unleashed! story slams every other month throughout the year, alternating with Verse Unleashed! poetry slams. For more information, call the Jesup Memorial Library at (207) 288-4245 or email
