Some thirty writers and storytellers took the mic — for three short minutes each – to share their works in progress Friday evening at Book Passage in San Francisco’s Ferry Building. The writers had been taking classes in memoir, young adult fiction, the short story, personal essay, storytelling and the novel at the Writers Grotto.
Jon and I took along our trusty camera, and I’m publishing pictures here of many folks as they read. Among the crowd pleasers were Oliver Williams’ short story about a little boy who could fly, Lauren Patti’s memoir about being short (which she is), and Chris Caldeira’s short story about — let’s call it penis envy and leave it at that.
We storytellers had a blast telling our stories; we’re pretty sure we made our teacher, Jeff Greenwald, proud.
