What’s the best way to learn about a city? Listen to its stories!
Experience St. Louis in a truly unique and authentic way at STL Storytelling Live, a live storytelling event featuring local authors. The stories presented will range from colorful and quirky to heart-warming and poignant. Storytellers will combine personal experience with favorite St. Louis topics like nostalgia, sports, historical happenings, and special places.
Longtime St. Louis radio personality and prolific travel writer Bill Clevlen (100 Things to Do in America Before You Die) will moderate the event program and participate alongside other local authors including:
- Cameron Collins, blogger and creator of distilledhistory.com (Lost Treasures of St. Louis)
- Amanda Doyle, guidebook and children’s author (To the Top: The Story of the Gateway Arch)
- Calvin Riley, founder and director of the George B. Vashon African American History Museum
- Carol Shepley, St. Louis historian and guide (St. Louis: An Illustrated Timeline)
- Ron Jacober, KMOX and Cardinals broadcaster (Immortal Moments in Cardinals History)
Books and other items by the storytellers will be available for sale before and after the event, with a portion of proceeds going to children’s charities supported by the Missouri Athletic Club. Participating charities include Join Hands ESL, KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now) St. Louis, and Books for Newborns. After the program, storytellers will greet attendees and autograph items purchased at the event.
Join us November 27 for the We Live Here HOUSE PARTY, a free celebration in honor of the show's fourth season. Come mix, mingle and breakdance with the people behind the voices you heard all season long: hosts, experts and guests! Plus, some of St. Louis' freshest young storytellers will perform live!
