Event Description

StoryStream and the Cambridge Historical Society will offer the first program in the new StoryTrades series: FOOD FOR THOUGHT: A STORIED WALK DOWN CAMBRIDGE'S CULINARY LANES PAST AND PRESENT.

Wednesday, February 23, 6:00-8:00 pm 

Did you know Julia Child?  Maybe you met a neighbor of hers?  Do you remember the Hungry Mama Restaurant?  One Potato, Two Potato?  Come share those stories and other memories of Cambridge's edible past and present at a "storytrade." StoryTrades are small gatherings, facilitated by a professional storyteller, in which participants share memories focused on a theme that is important to them and the host group. By coming together and sharing stories in a group, we hope to improve our own stories and learn more about the process of telling stories and share some of Cambridge’s culinary culture.
This is a free program, although space is limited and registration is required.   To sign up, please send your name and contact info to or call 617-547-4252. 

StoryTrades are funded in part by a Year of the Regions Grant from the National Storytelling Network.

Stories in the Streets in an outreach literacy program that focuses on families in at-risk areas and fosters community engagement in storytelling by: 1) Creating opportunities for public storytelling wherever families gather — a farmer’s market, laundromat, or food line; and, 2) Offering storytelling workshops that raise family engagement in literacy, cultural awareness and community understanding.  The program is currently active in Lawrence, Brockton and Randolph.
