GrownUp StoryTime: A January To Remember

It may be cold outside but there is a heartwarming community of storytellers getting ready for the next show. Join Boston’s GrownUp StoryTime at Aeronaut Brewing Company 7pm on Wednesday January 24th.

Here’s the deal: GrownUp Storytime is an hour of funny, heartwarming, crazy, amazing stories read aloud. Created by the original BooTown in Houston and now in Boston.

Remember storytime before bedtime? Well this is just like that only replace a loved one with a weird stranger, warm milk with craft brews and your bedroom with Aeronaut’s tap room. The best part is that you don’t have to go to sleep afterward – cause we’re all grown-up now!

They take short short (fact, fiction, and everything in between) stories written by the community, hand them to local performers, and hilarity and/or poignant storytelling ensues. Come enjoy a beer and listen to some great stories!

Interested in writing? Check out their call for writers: https://www.facebook.com/notes/bootown-boston/call-for-writersstorytellers/1256600417708201

Want to read? Email them at bostongust@bootown.org.

GUST thinks supporting local artist’s is important and so is accessibiility to the arts which is why the event is FREE but they ask for a $5 donation per person.
