Kathy Power and Christopher Osborne took home the honors March 20th! First place winner Kathy Power told a story of forgiveness about her time at Framingham State Prison. When given the opportunity to allow her enemy to fall down a flight of stairs, Kathy chose to help the woman avoid harm and their relationship was forever changed. Her riveting account earned her a $50 gift certificate to Bella Luna, a massmouth t-shirt, and the opportunity to tell her story on April 26th at The Big Mouthoff in the Boston Public Library's Rabb Hall.
|The Ripped Up 22s!|
Jamaica Plain's last story slam of the season ended with a special performance by three very talented young ladies. The Ripped Up 22s wowed the crowd as they performed two original songs on slam themes Love Objects and Secrets. Their performance was just one more indication that yes, indeed, story is everywhere!
