Schooled: August show wrap up

August storytellers brought their varsity game to Story Sessions with their own spin on the theme, “schooled”. From grade school crushes to a course in womanly arts, we learned a lot and laughed along the way.

Musical guests, Andy Miller and Ben Benedict of Dog 1, kicked off the evening with a little bluegrass.

Deanna took the stage and ushered us into a night where we would not only hear seven incredible stories, we would also get to hear lessons submitted by our very own audience members.

Stephanie Rogers: “I am a throwback to the 60’s, who is stuck in a town which is thrown back to the 50’s, with parents in their 40’s, who wholly embrace the 80’s.”
