Oct01SlantThursday, 7:30PM @ Space Gallery, Portland
The Telling Room's Slant series returns to Space Gallery with another installment of ten minute stories told from the heart–no notes, no props. "Saved" will feature five stories about life-altering moments of preservation, rescue, and redemption. Storytellers include Abdi Nor Iftin who was recently featured on This American Life, educator and spoken-word performer Tina Smith, minister Kate Dalton, and producer/rapper Brendon Whitney.
For the first time ever, this session of Slant will be ticketed. Due to feedback from past attendees and a desire for our audience to have a comfortable seat, we are offering tickets at $10 a pop via this link. Proceeds from the event will help support our free writing programs for Maine youth.
Doors at 7:00 - arrive early to claim a seat. Stories begin at 7:30 sharp!
