We’ve got more StoryRise events happening in 2009. Currently, we’re planning on the third Saturday of every month to be our “regular” night. This year, we decided to use the “National Month of….” as the themes for each Saturday gathering. The featured tellers will be challenged to create the most interesting program of stories based somehow around the month’s theme. The Challenge: Take a theme that might be a bit “beige” and bring it to vibrant life.
2009 Schedule and Themes:
National Courtesy Month (Relationships done right and some gone wrong.)
With Featured Storyteller Carol Knarr from Indiana.
Adopt A Shelter Dog Month (Pooches and pets potpourri.)
With Featured Storyteller Harriet Cole
International Drum Month (National Tellabration Night with Stories of Music and Song.)

National Calendar Awareness Month (The past, present and the future all around us.)
