The Vermont Moth GrandSLAM I: 'Fish Out of Water'

When: Fri., Oct. 9, 8 p.m. 2015

George Dawes Green spent many a night swapping stories with friends on a porch in his native Georgia. Inspired by the insects swarming around the porch light, the tellers of tales dubbed themselves “the Moths.” When Green relocated to New York, he took the name with him and founded the Moth, a nonprofit group committed to the art of storytelling. Far from the modest front-porch gathering of its origin, the organization now encompasses a weekly podcast, a national public radio show and live performances across the United States and beyond. Winning raconteurs from past competitions approach the mic for the Vermont Moth GrandSLAM I with true-to-life narratives on the theme “Fish Out of Water.”

Price: $23.50.
