Coffee & Culture

Since the Coronavirus prevented St. John's Storytelling from planning an in-person festival, they put together a podcast as a way to celebrate storytelling in the midst of catastrophe. Join Mav Adecer and Dave Paddon as they share stories of Home Out Of It, inspired by The Decameron, a set of stories from the 1300s that wove individual narratives of people fleeing The Plague.

Limited seats available. To register, please contact Visitor Services at 757-8090. 

Restrictions due to COVID 19 will be in place for everyone’s safety. Masks Required.
