Speak Up storyteller: Robin Gelfenbien

Our next Speak Up storytelling event is on Saturday, March 29th at Real Art Ways in Hartford.

Doors open at 7:00 PM. The show begins promptly at 8:00 PM.

There are still some tickets available, though we are expecting a sell out, so purchase them now before it’s too late. Tickets available here.

This week we introduce the storytellers who you will be hearing from on Saturday night.

Hope to see you there!
