Shelf Life: Like Adult Show and Tell

"We all have those stories, we all have those objects. The objects are the lens through which we view and live our experiences."  

"Children don't have the social constructs we adopt as we get older. We have a primal desire to share our stuff, our stories." 

--From my interview on Central Standard on KCUR. 

I talk about Shelf Life and share my 'winning' story about being a Chili Cook Off champion.

Shelf Life Debuts Saturday with Winning Show

Shelf Life is a bi-monthly storytelling event featuring objects and the stories behind them. 

Hosted by David Wayne Reed.

Shelf Life proudly debuts on September 17th at the Brick (1727 McGee, KCMO) with objects and stories about WINNING! 

Stories include: a guy who wins EVERYTHING, a teen finding early victories in high school forensics, a fortuitous mishap with the Stanley Cup, a Guinness Book World Record holder, winning by elimination on a reality tv show competition, an IRON (wo)MAN, and winning as a way of coping with a family drama. 

Also, everyone who buys a ticket is entered into a raffle for a really cool SURPRISE MYSTERY OBJECT to be unveiled at the event. Ooh, ahhh! 

Doors open at 7 p.m. and show begins at 7:30 p.m. 
Tickets are $10 at the door or in advance at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2566948.

Shelf Life is made possible with support from Arts KC.
