Story Jam: Until You Walk a Mile

California the Journey Story Jam – Until You Walk a Mile

Everybody has a story.  Come tell yours.

Do you have a story like this?

The Fresno County Public Library invites community members to register to tell their story about their personal journey to California.  We are looking for story tellers to share a 5 - 10 minute story about coming to California.

The finale event of our California the Journey series, this Story Jam is on Saturday, October 21 at 2pm at the Bitwise theatre, 700 Van Ness Ave.

Story telling will be from 2pm to 4pm followed by a one-hour reception.  The library will also provide "Listening Stations" during the reception for attendees to record their stories.

No one is merely a label.

We all have a story of why or how we landed here, right now.  Share yours!

Sharing individual stories about struggles and successes, obstacles and triumphs…we need to hear these individual stories.

Follow this link to the registration form.
