SPECIAL EVENT | First Person Singular


Through stories we tell and the stories we hear, our lives are built and meaning is discovered. Both personal and community narrative will be explored at First Person Singular, a new storytelling event series coming to Rochester. In five minute slices, attendees will have opportunities to share a story from their experiences, ranging anywhere from the amusing to the profound. Each of the monthly events has a prompt to help you begin your narrative, so this month's tellers will begin their personal tales with "I used to be (like) ___." In addition to the general volunteers, each month has a featured storyteller, who will take more time to give their personal snapshot. This month's event features BJ Scanlon, a sketch performer and comedian. Light refreshments provided, but feel free to BYOB.

First Person Singular will take place Friday, January 30, 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., at The Brainery, 274 North Goodman Street, B134 (inside Village Gate). Free.;
