Oct 9 The Moth Los Angeles StorySLAM: Planes, Trains, Automobiles

“It is brilliant and quietly addictive” – The London Guardian

“New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket” – The Wall Street Journal

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.

Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.

Moth stories dissolve socio-economic barriers, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome challenges and see with new eyes.

A limited number of $16 presale tickets will be available one week before the event.
$8 tickets at the door.

      Hey Jamie, we can all keep a look out for each other with a small group! I'm coming from work and hope to arrive by 645. Busbys is popular so grabbing seats is a good idea!

    Hey! Chris and I are both getting slammed with work, so we won't know until the last minute if we can definitely come, so if you are definitely going, try to look extra gay so y'all can find each other. Or post your numbers to connect.

    We have a lot of people in book club and some people can't always attend meetings so I'm posting more literary events here to keep you in the know! :)
