This Friday April 19, Memoryhouse will host its first major event, “I Got Schooled: Stories from the Classroom of Life,” presenting 2nd Story.
2nd Story is a Chicago-based collective of writers who are enthused by the art of storytelling. They share their tales through performances, complete with expert music and sound design, as well as workshops. Lauren Kelly Jones, Margaret Marion, Megan Stielstra, and Bobby Biedrzycki will read this Friday, a unique opportunity and performative celebration of writing.
The event will take place at the Logan Center for the Arts this Friday. Doors open at 6:00pm and stories begin at 6:30pm. After the stories are finished, audience members will have the opportunity to speak with the storytellers–ask some questions, get some answers. The event is free and open to the general public; we hope sincerely to see you there.
