Stay safe and stay home, slammers, because this fall the stories are coming to YOU. This month’s slam brings stories of “The New Normal.” Our lives have changed so much in the past six months. Come share stories of how your lives have been affected by current events, or perhaps stories about how things changed in the past. Get your favorite beverage ready and join us for music, stories and online community. Digital happy hour and music start at 7:15 pm. Slam starts at 7:35 pm.

Celebrating 10 years at the Lawrence Arts Center, Story Slam brings together local, regional, and sometimes national storytellers who share true stories filled with humor, pain, joy, terror, love and every emotion in between. No need to make a reservation; storytellers register upon arrival. While originally modeled after story telling programs like The Moth, Lawrence’s version includes prepared stories sometimes intermingled with impromptu stories inspired as the live event unfolds.

Stories are approximately five to eight minutes long, and (in pre-pandemic times) are told on the main stage. The event is not a competition, but at evening’s end, the audience will vote for a handful of favorites of the night. Those storytellers are invited to tell a new story at the season-ending “Grand Slam.”

Adults, 18+ only

Live Music by Ernesto Hodison Jr.
