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.
