Slam theme is ‘road trip’

BAR HARBOR — “Road trip” is the theme of the next Words Unleashed Story Slam at The Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m.

Anyone who has ever jumped into a car to set off on a trip to points known or unknown is invited to share this true, first-person story of the adventure. Did the trip suddenly go south? Were there interesting people along the way? Was the largest ball of string one of your stops?

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

At the end of the story slam, the audience chooses the theme for the next slam.
