WestportREADS 2019: Exploring Magical Realism with We Rise Storytelling Collective

Thursday, Jan 31, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Westport Library teams with We Rise Storytelling Collective for an evening of art and stories exploring magic realism, which is one of the storytelling techniques used by Mohsin Hamid in Exit West.

We Rise Storytelling Collective will perform a program of original stories, created by local storytellers, that explore dreams – one of the places we experience magic realism in life. The program will also include opportunities for audience members to share stories of their own.

Location: The Westport Woman's Club, 44 Imperial Avenue

WestportREADS is funded by the estate of Jerry A. Tishman.

We Rise: Storytelling Collective is a Bridgeport, CT-based organization founded under the belief that the sharing of our individual stories with one another is the most powerful way to create connection and empowerment in our communities and beyond. They produce live storytelling events as well as host writing and storytelling workshops to help people of all ages and backgrounds bring up the stories that make up their lives and cultivate the courage, discipline and self-love that it takes to share them with the world.
