This summer I took about 30 young ladies from Miss Porter's School to a Moth StorySLAM in Somerville, MA as part of a weeklong program on writing and storytelling.
It was kind of a magical night for these young ladies, who came from all over the country and the world to attend this program. As fate would have it, eight of the ten storytellers were women. The host of the show, the brilliant Bethany Van Delft, as well as the producer, Gina James, were also women.
Such a great opportunity to show these young ladies how women can take and own the stage.
I told a story that night about the birth of our son, Charlie and the problems that his sister, Clara, posed during the process.
