Story Swap at Mac's Backs

When: Mon., Dec. 6 2010

Addams or Waltons? Whichever family your own brood most resembles, spending winter holidays with them undoubtedly provides fodder for the family storyteller. If that's you, you'll be glad to know there is an outlet for your recently composed Parable of Uncle Al or your Fable of Four Divorces. Take those oral tales — funny, insightful, or otherwise — to tonight's story swap at Mac's Backs, the venerable used bookstore on Coventry. The monthly get-together is coordinated by members of the Western Reserve Association for the Preservation & Perpetuation of Storytelling, and provides a supportive environment for both experienced and novice storytellers to try out their stuff. No tales to tell? Then just come and give a listen: You never know what could inspire your inner yarn-spinner. The free story swap starts tonight at 7 at Mac's Backs, 1820 Coventry Rd. in Cleveland Heights. Call 216-321-BOOK or visit for more info. — Cicora
