Attention Angelinos: {fray} contributor Lance Anderson is going to be hosting a very special night of stories tomorrow (Thursday) night. Read on for details.


Here's the press release Lance sent me.


Starting October 11 at the Lankershim Arts Center, in North Hollywood, local storytellers will present a weekly Story Salon. The Story Salon will run for five consecutive Thursday evenings at 8pm. Each Thursday will feature 10 storytellers, each performing seven-minute stories based on a theme. Each week's lineup will be unique based on a revolving cast of over 25 members.

Scheduled to perform over the course of the run include Beverly Mickins, Dan Farren, Lance Anderson, Julio Martinez, Michael Rayner, Joseph Doherty, Frances Peach, Marti MacGibbon, Paul Jacek, Leni Ramberg, and Bill Sperling among others.

Each Thursday one of the members will host the evening of storytelling that is based on a theme.

October 18: "It's too late to turn back now" hosted by Beverly Mickins
October 25: Crime and Punishment hosted by Lance Anderson
