It’s all about Brain Health! Laugh Lines: A Storytelling Event

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration on Community Living (ACL) is presenting a storytelling event series featuring local, amateur older adult storytellers.

The series is sponsored by HHS ACL as part of the national “What is Brain Health?” Campaign.

Laugh Lines: A Storytelling Event about the Experience of Getting Older will be held on June 25 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Hoover-Leppen Theatre at the Center on Halsted (3656 N. Halsted Street).

It is a free event that will feature six amateur older adult storytellers ( age 60+), each of whom will be selected from a previously held storytelling workshop. These storytellers will engage in a friendly storytelling competition, sharing their personal narratives and humorous stories on the topic of growing older in front of an audience of their peers. The event will be hosted by a local celebrity emcee, kicked off by a professional storyteller, and a panel of judges will determine the winner.

While the event is free and open to the public, registration is required.
