Many new tellers signed up to take their turn at the mic along with several seasoned story slam participants. The stories were lively and moving. massmouth's own Robin Maxfield and HR Britton co-hosted the slam and created a warm and inviting atmosphere. Karen Given , second place winner at the Kennedys slam on October 4th, opened the second set of stories with a story transporting us to Africa. During the evening's theme of "transported " the listeners traveled to places people only dream of, literally, as many people offered stories of their dreams . we rode down embankments in runaway cars, went camping, traveled with some questionable and perhaps murderous company. The listeners were charmed to hear Katie Liesener, Oct.4th story slam winner as she favored us with another one of her "gems" and closed out the second set of stories. Judges had a difficult time calculating the winners as the numbers were all so close.
|Elby - first place winner|
