This event has reached its capacity and registration is now closed.

Join us for Story Barn, a long-standing Historical Society tradition that celebrates the fine art of sharing our personal histories. Funny, touching and uplifting, Story Barn sessions always leave the audience feeling the warmth of our clever and insightful community. Led by Master of Ceremonies, Bonnie Levison, the evening features stories based on the theme “Life Imitates Art.” Bring friends and family to enjoy a memorable evening of sharing and connection while listening to community members tell their stories.

Each storyteller shares a short true story on the theme “Life Imitates Art.” Stories use this theme as a starting point but it does not have to be taken literally. Do you have a story to tell? No prior storytelling experience is needed. Anyone who is interested in participating as a featured storyteller please contact Stephanie Barnett at Storytellers will meet with Bonnie Levison in advance to prep for the event.

Our featured storytellers this year are Bob Baldridge, Mike Cranmer, Jeannine Madoff, Wendy Mages, Ira Meistrich and Abby Walker.
