Join us for a Bronx StorySLAM hosted by The Moth. Arrive by 7pm for the opportunity to put your name in The Moth “hat”. At 7:30pm names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage to tell a five minute story about the theme of the evening, MAMA RULES!. Of the ten featured storytellers, one winner is chosen.
The Moth is excited to be back in The Bronx! We have set aside a handful of complimentary tickets for Bronx residents. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this offer. **Complementary tickets are now sold out**
$10 General admission tickets are now available at themoth.org. Tickets may be available at the door, but the majority of tickets are available online. Seating is first come, first served.

7:30pm Stories begin
Theme of the night: MAMA RULES!
Prepare a five-minute story involving a mother or mothering! Your womb of origin or the person who raised you. Mother love: making it all better or setting you straight. Maternal instincts and mother-powered superhuman acts. (LIfting a car, anyone?) Mama's boys, Mommy Dearest and Mr. Mom also welcome. Becoming a mother, finding a mother, or finally recognizing the wisdom of the one you got. (Please be sure that you bring a story about a mother, not an homage.)
Public and Community Enagement Programs are made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
