the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts

Check out the press in the Boston Globe for Big Apple to Beantown at Club Passims

The Boston Globe
New York state of mind
By Nick A. Zaino III
Globe Correspondent / September 15, 2008

The Boston vs. New York battle has been a bitter one, fought mostly along the Red Sox-Yankees line. For a more gentle and enlightening comparison of the two cities, catch NY to Boston at Club Passim tonight. Four storytellers from the Big Apple - Barbara Aliprantis, Ken Corsbie, Robin Bady (left), and Joy Kelly - will tell stories of their city, cohosted by New York storyteller and children's author Bob Reiser and Boston storyteller Laura Packer. The New York folks will be the focus, but Boston storytellers Lani Peterson, Michael Anderson, and Norah Dooley will also present their work. Presented by StoryLAB, Massmouth, and LANES. 8 p.m. $10, $8 members. Club Passim, 47 Palmer St., Cambridge. 617-492-7679.
