A StorySlam including Special Guest: The Moth Radio Hour's Matthew Dicks
This past summer we held our very first story slam in front of a sold-out audience! At the end of the night the most common question was: when is the next one? We now have an answer!
Lives on the Line will feature brand new stories from the June story slam alumni and from new Kansas City Speaker Corp members. We will also present very special guest, Matthew Dicks. Matthew Dicks is an award-winning storyteller, author, public school teacher and former fast food worker. His stories have been featured countless times on the Moth Radio Hour and on This American Life, TED Talks and others.
