Chicago’s Live Lit scene is a rapidly growing community of people who love to tell stories.
The old cliché that “stories have been around since the cavemen” is true, but this bare-bones approach to getting together to exchange and listen to stories has caught steam of late. On any given night in Chicago, you can find a place to test out your work as a performer, or catch a collection of stories as an audience member.
On Sept. 17, WBEZ members will get a backstage pass into the world of Live Lit with our WBEZ Member Meet-up: Live Lit Edition at the historic FitzGerald’s Nightclub in Berwyn. Join host Don Hall and the producers/storytellers from The Moth, This Much is True, Story Club, Write Club, Stoop Style Stories, Here’s the Story, 2nd Story and Guts & Glory as they talk shop and tell stories.
LIVE STREAM begins below at 7 p.m. CST on Sept. 17, 2013.
