You also have the option of choosing any other topic to discuss in this first annual LIVE get-together here in south county..

Participants will congregate at the Gazebo located on Main Street behind Great Barrington Town Hall, the same venue where they have been holding their summer concert series on various Wednesdays and Fridays during the months of June, July and August. The FREE event will take place on Thursday, August 29th from 7 to 9 pm and is sponsored by The Great Barrington Parks And Recreation Department.

This is a "spoken word" open mic event therefore musicians should leave their instruments at home as they can use use simple words and sentences to express their feelings and interests to the audience. No registration is required. Join in and enjoy yourself as your story could be the topic of interest for your friends and neighbors to reflect and reminisce about upon the next day and beyond.
