Hear from Local Birmingham Voices at the Third Annual Magic City Storytellers: June 8

May 18, 2017

"THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR A STORY THAT CAN TRANSPORT PEOPLE TO ANOTHER PLACE." J.K. ROWLING

Make room for an evening of stories and songs at the Clubhouse on Highland at InSpero's Third Annual Magic City Storytellers. You'll hear from a firefighter storyteller, the owner of the Museum of Fond Memories, and as WBHM described, a musician who has an “old soul with a millenial’s heart.”  

We're starting earlier (6 p.m.) so you can enjoy more time on the patio for wine and cheese, beer and appetizers.  Performances begin at  7 p.m. Intermission features a coffee bar by The Neighborhood Brew and desserts (break-up cookies....oh my...if you've never had them...) from Church Street Coffee and Books.

Did we say there's limited seating at this beautiful, historic Birmingham home and venue? Reserve tickets here.

Guest Voices: Dr. Steve Garber on The Importance of the Table

It was at Rivendell the hobbits think through the vocation they have been given, carefully working out the who and what and where of the odyssey that will be theirs. But integral to all that they were, and to all that they would need to be, was the table at Rivendell, a place for the best conversations and the best food and the best drink — simply said, a wonder of wonders."
