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 and 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.
The event will take place at Bridgeside Books in Waterbury, Vermont.
