Live story slam this weekend in lil ole S-Town!! That’s right, the folks over at A Church are bringing a taste of east coast storytelling to our beloved mountain town of Salida, CO.
The event is one of many such storytelling events spinning out of New York City based nonprofit, the Moth, which was founded in 1997 by poet and novelist George Dawes Green. Green created The Moth as a way of recreating the vibe of his home in Georgia, where moths were attracted to the porch light under which he and his friends gathered to spin their stories. The Moth also offers a weekly podcast and in 2009 launched a national public radio show, The Moth Radio Hour, which won a 2010 Peabody Award.
