Thank you for your interest in participating in the Annual Intergenerational storytelling event. One Book and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) have partnered to have a intergenerational storytelling event, inspired by "The Moth" and "This Much is True". Special thank you to the Northwestern Theater Department and faculty members, Rives Collins and Lynn Kelso, for their help putting together the Storytelling Event.
The event will take place on November 14th at 5pm in the Norris Center, 1999 Campus Drive. Lake room (203) in Evanston. All current students are invited to sign-up to tell a story. A reception will follow the event.
We all have stories. One Book celebrates storytellers inspired by great authors. Margaret Atwood looks at power, resistance, adaptation, women and many other themes in The Handmaid’s Tale. Perhaps the story you tell will reflect one of these themes or any other inspired by Atwood. For more information go to www.northwestern.edu/onebook.
If you would like to tell your own story or the story of someone you know, sign up below. On the night of the event, 4 student names and 4 OLLI names will be drawn from a hat. If you are not present when your name is called, another name will be selected. The story you tell must be true. It must be on theme. It must have stakes. It must be your story to tell. Must be on-time. 5-8 minutes in length. You are not allowed to read from a page or reference notes.
