Artoberfest with PechaKucha Night Benton Harbor/St. Joseph, SAT, SEPT 16

Saturday, September 09, 2017 3:15 PM | Kim Jorgensen Gane (Administrator)

Back in May of 2016 I told my family's story of restaurant ruin after 9/11 and my husband's new dream of owning a taco truck for a live storytelling show called PechaKucha, which takes place several times a year in something like 1000 cities across the world. It's pretty amazing that Benton Harbor/St. Joseph is one of them. 

This Saturday, September 16th, I'm telling another story for Artoberfest with PechaKucha Night: Mother Ffffeminist! It was a huge hit last year when the PechaKucha storytelling took place on a screen dropped against the huge brick wall in The Livery's parking lot. We're praying for good weather and hoping it will be again.

Enjoy artists and some amazing music during the day, and some incredible storytelling with photo slides at sunset. Also for your enjoyment, local food vendors (including the hubby's taco truck) and The Livery's beer and regional wines will be served. Bring your lawn chairs and be ready to enjoy an evening of laughs, artistic expression and deep thoughts.

Here's the lineup, you might recognize some other names (like MY HUSBAND's(!) and Meagan Francis from 98.3 The Coast with Jonny & Meagan in the Mornings, etc., etc.):
