Lit Lounge - Tandem

Lit Lounge returns...

Over the past two years, Lit Lounge has become a smashing success. Islanders and visitors from all walks of life have come to share stories both moving and funny, surprising and poetic.

And we return with a very special Lit Lounge event...

Lit Lounge TANDEM

Bicycles built for two, overlapping stories, duos of all kinds... what kind of TANDEM story do you have to share?

The brainchild of Islander Cara Briskman, Lit Lounge was inspired by similar events in other parts of the country and by programs like the Moth Radio Hour. Cara began working with Maria Glanz at Open Space to craft this new program for Vashon. At our past Lit Lounge events, stories have ranged from the poignant to the outrageous. We invite tales of truth (or at least a kernel of it.) Stories should be no longer than 5 minutes.

The act of storytelling can be risky; to sit or stand in front of others and share your story can be intimidating. But there is a strength and power in speaking. For Lit Lounge, we have made a space that is intimate, safe, where you are free to share and not be judged. Lit Lounge takes place in an unusual setting, one rarely used at Open Space.

People who bring a story will drop their name in a hat at the door when they enter - and names will be drawn as the event unfolds. If your name is drawn, up you come to tell your story. Between 10 to 12 names will be drawn - and it's up to fate and the storytelling gods and goddesses to determine whose names those are.

Sunday, November 6th, 4pm. Doors Open at 3:30pm.

Stories are one of the most ancient ways of gathering, of making sense of life, of sharing oneself with others. Join us to share your own story, or simply to listen to others.

Admission is $10, and tickets are available at Vashon Bookshop, brownpapertickets.com, and at the door. As always, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

All ages are welcome, but the event is not intended for children. Stories may include mature language or themes.

Lit Lounge was created in part due to a grant from 4Culture.
