I’m doing a storytelling event! My first in a while. Christine over at Color Arc Productions invited me to join a diverse, eclectic crew of folks, and it’s been a blast to get to know these new friends. You know what else is cool? The story I’m telling is a new version of the story I told for Listen To Your Mother almost exactly 10 years ago, which is right around when I started this site.
This is from the press release:
Austin, TX – Color Arc Productions is proud to present STORIES ABOUT COMFORT FOOD.
“We want to produce a live storytelling event that feeds the soul,” says Christine Hoang, Founding Producing Director of Color Arc Productions. “So we asked ourselves: ‘What’s something that heals you?’ The answer was universal – food!”
Seven storytellers will share humorous, heartfelt, heart breaking, but also healing stories inspired by “comfort food.” Our storytellers include a Netflix dating show celebrity, a millennial comedian & filmmaker, a celebrated Austin playwright, a journalist turned mosaic artist, a writer & tarot card reader, a retired Navy Chief, and an 82-year old Vietnamese American grandmother. Six are Austinites. The grandmother will be flying in from New Orleans to share her childhood story of growing up in rural Vietnam in the 1940s.
Tickets are FREE for the event at Austin Cinemaker Space, but you gotta reserve ’em, which you can do right HERE.
