Storytelling Love

Here's an early preview since the July Odyssey Storytelling event is when we go to press next week on Thursday, July 9, 7 p.m. at the Screening Room, 127 E. Congress St. Always fun and interesting, and sometimes mind blowing, the evening's theme is Independence. From organizers: It's your first sleepover, your new driver's license, and the food in your refrigerator in your apartment. Storytellers: Single mother and grandmother, Catherine Rhianna Hess; trailblazer/advocate, Stephanie Frederick; Psychologist and writer, Shannon Snapp; Texan-biker/bad-ass, Robert Neely; comedian, Ryan Malco; and Joseph Bradbury. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more info, go to the event's Facebook page.
