Join us for this inaugural event where Northwestern students and OLLI members come together to share 5 minute, true, spoken-word stories about how they, or someone they know, have taken a stand for something they believe in as individuals. Standing up for what you believe can take many forms - sitting in, marching, taking a knee, reaching out, speaking up. The belief can be big or small. Sharing these stories can inspire others to take a stand, as well as demonstrate the power of storytelling. Inspired by "The Moth" and "This Much is True" this event is part of the One Book One Northwestern celebration.
Refreshments to follow the event. This event is free and open to all OLLI members and their guests. Listeners welcome!
One Book One Northwestern is a campus-wide reading program held at Northwestern University every year. In addition to campus-wide events, OLLI expands and supplements the program with events open to all OLLI members.
