Sunday, April 30, 2017 (Sundays in April)

The New York Times Readers Club @ Espresso Bueno, 248 N Main St in Barre VT @ 10:00am to 1:00pm

Reading the Sunday Times can be a big commitment. But it doesn't have to be when you divvy up the paper with others, and everybody talks about what they've read! Pick a section; pick an article within that section to R-E-A-D in full, thoroughly, from start to finish, quietly to yourself; present a synopsis of what you've read; then LISTEN to others do the same. Cafe culture is embodied by CIVIL discussion (NO: diatribes, soapboxes, pontificating, or hijacking the group). The first rule of Readers Club is: TALK about Readers Club...

extempo @ Highland Lodge, 1608 Craftsbury Rd in Greensboro VT @ 8:00pm

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 & 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.

Best of extempo 2012 @ the Old Town Hall in Brookfield VT @ 8:00pm

Storytelling is meant to be ephemeral, yet it's always something of a loss when a good story only ever gets told live on stage but once. Did you follow extempo in its third year? This FREE show features the standout stories of five years ago and will include appearances by many of your favorites. (Note: The storytelling at this event is by invitation only—no sign ups/no open mic.) Come listen to some of extempo's greatest hits: If you missed these stories the first time around...do not miss them again!
