The Yarn - People Spinning True Life Stories, "Betrayal"

  • M. Judson Booksellers 130 S. Main Street Greenville, SC 29601 USA (map)

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! 

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.

Theme for January 2016:

"Betrayal" - Happy Valentine's Day, y'all. Join us for stories of lost trust, sneaky behavior, and outed secrets. It could be a heartbreaker or hilarious, good-for-nothing or for-your-own-good. But someone is gonna get burned.
