In Mississippi, storytelling is as natural as breathing. In that tradition, The Clarion-Ledger will bring our neighbors together four times a year to listen to each other’s real-life stories.
The theme for our first-ever Mississippi Storytellers event is “You’re So Mississippi” — stories of living, laughing and loving in the Magnolia State.
C-L Editorial Cartoonist Marshall Ramsey and Features Editor Katie Eubanks will emcee the event.
Five Mississippians - ranging from a "narratologist" to an investigative journalist and a few regular folks - will take the stage to share their stories.
Doors at the Red Room at Hal and Mal's-Jackson, MS will open at 6, and storytelling starts at 7. Plenty of time to mix 'n mingle, order some food and drinks, and maybe tell a few stories of your own. :)
