What is the BPLF StorySlam?

On June 6, 2014, the Boston Public Library Foundation will hold a storytelling competition and charity event to support the programs and services at the Boston Public Library. Join us to pack the Rabb Lecture Hall to see our great speakers, a panel of well known judges, and maybe even tell your own story, all centered around this year’s theme: “Overdue.”

Your ticket will get you into this great event and support the Boston Public Library Foundation, a tax-exempt non-profit that helps the Boston Public Library offer over 10,000 programs across the city year-round that are, as the library’s motto says, free to all. Your ticket also includes a drink ticket.
