Event description
Six Feet Apart is celebrating our second year with stories about anniversaries.

About this event

Happy Anniversary to Us! Two years ago we opened a Zoom account and began staring into that little green light on our webcams. Who knew we’d still be having this much fun? We've gone from the days of sketchy internet and Zoom bombs to shows spanning a variety of topics, genres and tellers.

Join us for stories about anniversaries, birthdays, and all other dates that we commemorate with celebrations. Find out what our four acclaimed storytellers are keeping track of with a show about all the special dates we circle on the calendar.

This event will be live-streamed on YouTube and your ticket allows for viewing afterwards in case you can't make it on the 24th. Want to be in the Zoom Room with our storytellers? Purchase the Backstage Pass option.

We are better for it. She is an award winning storyteller, author, singer-songwriter and humorist. After using applied storytelling in her work with adjudicated and at risk youth for 12 years, Kim took a turn onto a different avenue of story and song which led her down the path of full time touring for the last 15 years where she gathered an armload of awards. She performs regularly at festivals and theaters around the country, has written a well received folk operetta and has been a guest editor and contributor for various publications. Kim's material gets regular airplay on Sirius XM and NPR Affiliate Stations.
