Everyone has a story to tell! Why not tell yours at “The Witness Stand,” a new StorySlam series presented by Manitowoc Public Library in partnership with Courthouse Pub. No props, no notes. Just five minutes and a true, personal story to tell. This first installments theme—“You’ll Never Believe It, But . . . ”—will place incredible—on any level you choose—stories in the spotlight. The important thing to remember is that this is an evening of true storytelling—not stand-up comedy, poetry, political manifestos, lecturing, or doing a reading from an unpublished post-apocalyptic saga. Time to tell your tale! Step up to the mic on Wednesday, September 26, starting at 6 PM at Courthouse Pub, 1001 S. 8th St., in Manitowoc. Sign-up begins at 5:30 PM every “Witness Stand” evening. Admission is FREE!!! However, beverages and food will be available for purchase.
