Thursday, October 26, 2017 (approximately monthly)

extempo @ Bridgeside Books, 29 Stowe St in Waterbury VT @ 8:00pm

Now in its eighth year, extempo is Vermont's most popular live storytelling series. At each event (approximately monthly), local raconteurs—many of whom you will recognize as your friends & neighbors—get on stage and regale the audience with their short-format, first-person, true stories delivered without notes or reading. Often about half of the participants are veteran storytellers, and half are newcomers trying it for the first or second time. Sign up in advance if you want to give it a try...or just come listen.
