How Will You Tell Your Story?

Storytellers Circle of Halifax presents Storytelling at Just Us! CafĂ©, Spring Garden Road Thursday, January 10, 2013, at 7-8:30 pm Theme: “How will you tell YOUR story?” Your life is a story in the making; how will it be told? We no longer leave the lengthy correspondence of past centuries, or carefully selected snapshots attached with wee corners to the black leaves of photo albums, or family stories oft repeated to fill long winter nights. How will you choose to tell your story: write a book, a blog, a journal? Tell it one story at a time to storytellers, children and grandchildren? Or will you leave it to others to imagine from your actions, successes and failures, random and reckless tweets and Facebook postings? Come share your thoughts and your stories to start the new year! We welcome visiting listeners and new participants. Linda
