Local writers tapped to tell stories of motherhood for Listen to Your Mother
Posted March 16, 2014
After last year's sold out inaugural show, Listen to Your Mother returns to Raleigh for two shows this May.
The national series of original live readings features local writers who share their own stories about motherhood.
Fourteen local writers have just been selected to read their own stories at the Raleigh shows, scheduled for May 6 and May 8, at Kenan Auditorium at William Peace College in Raleigh. The Raleigh show is organized by three local moms and writers - Liisa Ogburn, Marty Long and Keanne Hoeg, who also are part of the cast.
The cast members will each deliver 3 to 5 minute stories live on stage during the May shows. Tickets are $20 and are on sale now. A portion of all ticket proceeds go to SafeChild. I went last year and had a fantastic time listening to stories about everything from guinea pigs, to peeing dolls and more. This is a fun outing with your mom friends.
Listen to Your Mother started in 2010 in Madison, Wis. This year, 32 cities across the country are planning shows around Mother's Day.
