Come listen to writers, poets, comedians, and talented raconteurs share their true, personal tales of love-related war wounds, and maybe their favorite songs from the ’80s.

Registration is strongly recommended, but not required.

There will be a wine reception at 6:30 pm for pre-registered guests. Stories start at 7 pm. If registration for this event is full, there is a good chance you can still get a seat.
