About this event

Birthday presents. Holiday gifts. Souvenirs from a trip. Sage pieces of wisdom. Being generous with our time and attention. A home cook meal when we’re feeling sick.

Gifts can come in many forms, from the tangible to the spiritual. What gifts have you received that have changed your life? What gifts have you given that made an impact? Is there anything from your childhood that you really wanted but never received? Have you ever re-gifted something? Or been surprised by what you found under the wrapping paper? How does sharing gifts bring us closer together?

Do you have a story of a time when you gave or received a memorable gift? Come share your experiences in a safe and interactive community setting.

At our monthly Storytimes, we explore a theme through the lens of our stories and the stories from our community. This is a welcoming space where everyone is encouraged to share, listen, and connect.

This hour-long event is divided into two parts.

Small group conversations using fun question prompts to spark story ideas

4 to 6 folks will have the opportunity to get up on stage and share their stories with everyone

This month’s theme is: GIFTS

Storytime @ Manny’s is hosted by Liz Morrison

Liz believes our stories have the power to connect and inspire us. She brings this to life as a storytelling consultant, workshop facilitator, and co-founder of the Connection Feast community. Her winding storytelling journey includes 15 years producing human-centered content for companies (Airbnb), campaigns (Obama 2012), causes (Idealist.org), and cable (Bravo, NatGeo, Discovery); sharing her own stories on stage at The Moth, Beyond Borders Storytelling, and About Last Night; and using tarot cards to guide introspective coaching sessions for individuals and groups. She lives in Berkeley with her big, black cat, Indy.

Join her for workshops, facilitated conversations, and thought-provoking question prompts: www.lizmorrison.com
