Storytelling 101 @ Toquet Hall

“I couldn't believe what was happening, even while it was happening. I was white knuckling the steering wheel as I watched the policeman get out of his car and walk towards us. "You really don't have a driver’s license, do you?" my best college buddy asked. He had one hand on his door, ready to run at a moment’s notice. "No," I said, "I think I'm going to jail." 

Theme: Unbelievable but True

Something that may have happened to us that is so strange, weird, or inconceivable that unless it happened to us, we wouldn't have believed it.

Toquet Hall sponsors The Storytelling Circle, an informal gathering where master storyteller John O’Hern & others will entertain and maybe even inspire you to tell yours. Storytellers will be given guidelines to follow so RSVP at 203.981.7092 or
