As a non-virgin-y Twisted Story Tell-ee, I had a good idea of what may be in store this evening.
Even with that said, Satori Shakoor never fails to bring out Detroit’s most amazing line-up of courageous storytellers.More
I began my first experience with the Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers full of apprehension for what the night might hold. My nervousness was quickly relieved by a beautiful and lively performance by Foxtrot Ball Room Champions, Pamela More and Kevin Collins. With a smile already on my face, Satori Shakoor, our guide for the night, danced her way up on stage to introduce the Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers to the night’s virgins. Being a “virgin” to storytelling myself, I had no idea what I was in for when Tim Elorby made his way to the stage.
My first time attending a Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers event was extremely enjoyable. The theme of the night’s stories was Pride and Prejudice, and I was sure in for a treat. I walked in a little bit late and was met with the sweet voice of a young girl. Her name was Hannah Wise, as she was aptly named.
I recently attended a story-telling event with my long-time friend Cathleen Francois of GreeningDetroit. GreeningDetroit is a media sponsor for The Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers which is held monthly at the Charles H. Wright Museum in Midtown Detroit. She invited me because she knew I would enjoy what was being offered. Since she had invited me to the event, I was intrigued just by the name and I was understandably excited to see what we would experience and the stories we would hear.More
