Over the past few months, with the help of over a dozen volunteer curators, the storytellers have been working to shape their stories. The tales they tell will make you laugh and make you cry as they explore our humanity and imperfections.  Food trucks Johnson's Real Ice Cream and Wooden Shoe Coffee will be in the parking lot from 6:30-7:30 p.m., selling ice cream treats and coffee drinks to enjoy during the storytelling.

Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance

From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt (Ohio) town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America's white working class. A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.
