Event Description

What are the life stories that shape us? The Mantle Project produces storytelling events that aim to bring together diverse perspectives and spark deeper dialogue.

On Thursday October 18 we feature Patrick Humphries, Tammy Weitzman, Linda Jenkins and Alex Ingram, four volunteer storytellers who each support either the Tea Party, GOP, or Occupy Boston. Their stories will be followed by a moderated Q&A.

Come take a break from the work-week enjoy a night of great stories and discussion; invite your friends, family, and colleagues and see you on the 18th!

*Not-So-Small Print* The event is free of charge with a $10 suggested donation. The event will be videotaped and your attendance implies consent to be filmed. The YMCA Theater is located within walking distance of the Central Square T-stop (Red Line).
