Grilled cheese sandwiches, stories, and you! Join Hear Here next Friday in Downtown Oakland

Aug 3, 2012

What happens when you combine local public radio, a story slam, and a grilled cheese cook-off? A recipe for a good time! KALW is bringing you a live menu of food-themed tales from professional storytellers and local residents. It's part of our new community storytelling project, Hear Here: A Pop-Up Radio Project. Be sure to stay for the evening’s three acts:

APPETIZER: Professional storyteller and radio producer hamming it up on stage

MAIN COURSE: Grilled cheese cookoff, judged by select audience members

DESSERT: A multi-course story slam: food memories, disasters, insights, & more. 

Performers include author and New America Media editor Andrew Lam, and more! We're still accepting story submissions until Sunday evening, August 5th; to learn more, email
