Open mic night. That’s not exactly what anyone had in mind when Tell Me More… Live Storytelling kicked off a little over a year ago. When a storyteller called in sick, we didn’t really have much of a choice, and it turned out to be a good thing. Four people volunteered to tell their story, three of them allowed us to post their story too.
I went first with a possible icebreaker. I shared a story of a trip I took to Paris that, predictably, included a viewing of the Mona Lisa at the Louvre. The unpredictable happened while I was there.
Brian Garraty took to the stage next with a story about a trip home from college.
The final storyteller, David Mu, shared a story of parental pride.
No one was sure how an open mic would work for Tell Me More. But we did it, and we hope you enjoy it.
Deb Markham, executive producer of Tell Me More… Storytelling, spent several years in journalism and now spends her days conducting outreach for a nonprofit.
David Mu is a professor Eastern Virginia Medical School. There is one degree of separation between him and a Nobel Peace Prize.
