Storybox is a unique storytelling event that brings people together to ask big questions, share stories of life and illuminate the things we have in common. We all have a story to tell and when we get together to share our stories it ignites something special. You'll uncover common ground with someone you might never have expected. Over the next couple months we'll be sharing stories inspired by three alternating themes:
Roots - stories about relaying roots and creating a new sense of home.
Cherish - stories about love we feel for people, places and things and how it defines us.
Leaps - stories about reinvention of ourselves and of people and places around us. Story contributions will be put on display at East New Orleans Regional Library. Come join us for our first Storybox event at Royal Brewing (7366 Townsend Place)! (More)
