‘Meals gone wild’ is theme



BAR HARBOR — The theme of the Jesup Memorial Library’s next Words Unleashed Story Slam is “meals gone wild.” Participants will share their true stories of a wild meal on Friday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m.

Sometimes a simple meal turns into an adventure or a nightmare. Maybe a first date did not turn out as expected, or maybe a family meal turned into a much bigger deal.

Those familiar with “The Moth” broadcast on NPR will recognize the format. These are true stories told live. Stories must be true, be the teller’s own and told in the first person. Stories should be no more than five minutes long.

The public is invited to share their own stories, cheer on friends or just listen. At the end of the story slam, the audience will choose the theme for the next slam.

Contact the Jesup Memorial Library at 288-4245 or kchagnon@jesuplibrary.org.
