Southerners tell the best stories. In fact, I would say we spin better yarns than anyone in the country. Inspired by The Moth and Spark London, "The Yarn" is an evening of true-life storytelling. And best of all, it's starring...you! Prepare a 5-6 minute yarn on our evening's theme. Then, come to M. Judson & put your name "in the hat" ... 8 storytellers will be picked at random to share with the audience! The only rules?
1.) It has to be largely TRUE, taking into account the exaggeration and shapeshifting that always happens with the good retelling of a story. 2.) It has to be a STORY. No poetry or novel excerpts, please. 3.) It has to be TOLD. No notes. No reading. 4.) It has to be ON TIME. Self-explanatory. 5.) Sit back and enjoy as we build a community through story. There are no winners or losers, but you will receive feedback from an audience panel, and might even be asked to tell at Alchemy Comedy's curated Truth Be Told storytelling night!
Theme for February 2018: JUSTICE
The event is FREE, but we will be collecting donations for Greenville Wordsmiths, a nonprofit empowering kids ages 7-14 to discover & share their own stories through the craft of writing.
Bob and his wife have recently moved to Greenville and we are thrilled to include him among our prestigious World Affairs Council Upstate speakers. He is the author of the New York Times best seller The American Story: A Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things which will be available for purchase and Bob will be delighted to sign your books. Doors open at 11:30; lunch served at 12:00.
Join us for our weekly children's Story Time! Each week on Saturday mornings at 10:30am. We'll set up shop in the Kid's Nook to read stories of adventure, mayhem, and joy. As always, a story time treat will be provided by The Chocolate Moose.
It's that time of year again and you know you need your fix... It's Girl Scout Cookie Season! Come on out and enjoy these 70 degree February days and support a local Girl Scout troop in front of our store this Saturday morning. The girls are sweethearts and the cookies are for a great cause, so you do not have to feel the least bit guilty about how many boxes of Thin Mints you buy!
Store Hours: Mon-Thurs 9am-9pm Fri-Sat 9am-10pm Sun 11am-5pm
