Story slam eyes ‘roots’

BAR HARBOR — “Roots” is the theme of the next Words Unleashed Story Slam at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, May 20, at 7 p.m.

Anyone who has set down roots, struggled to pull up the roots in their garden or maybe searched for their own roots should come share what the word means to them.

Those familiar with “The Moth” broadcast on NPR will recognize the format. These are true stories told live. Participants’ stories must be true, be their 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.
