Five years ago, four women met at a storytelling workshop. Since then they have coached and encouraged each other in telling better stories. They have traveled together and performed together - even twice here in Alexandria. This year, we get to hear all four women again, each giving us a full hour of stories over the next four weeks. This is Stories From Friends - as these women are friends with each other and are reaching out from their homes to us, their Alexandria friends.
This event is part three in a series. Didn't see part one or two? No worries! You can jump in at any time!
Storyteller Cheryl Mason closes our series on May 17th.
