By registering here, you will get information on our upcoming workshops in the next few weeks. The schedule for our workshops has not been determined yet, but OLLI will be holding workshops with professional storytellers on both campuses throughout the month of March to support anyone who is thinking about sharing their story at the Take a Stand event. We'll have an orientation session in early March (date, time, and place to be determined). By registering here, you will receive information on the orientation session. At the orientation session, you will get more information on the Take a Stand Event and details on the upcoming workshops. There is no commitment to tell your story at the Take a Stand event - you are welcome to join us even if you just want to hone your storytelling skills.  Questions? Email OLLI member Suzanne Farrand at s.farrand@sbcglobal.net  Take a Stand is part of One Book One Northwestern which 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.

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.
