The Telling Room - "Show & Tell"
Hosted at the State Theatre, Portland, Maine, The Telling Room Presents Show & Tell: A Literary Spectacular was a 90-minute literary cabaret celebrating the power of writing and storytelling.
This brand new event showcased performances across mediums from a variety of storytellers including writer Andre Dubus III, singer-songwriter Josh Ritter, novelist Paula McClain, and poet Zainab Almatwari. Comedian John Hodgman and hip-hop artist Jean Grae emceed the evening.
Show & Tell raises awareness and funds for the Telling Room's confidence building literary arts programs. All proceeds from the event will be used to support the nonprofit's free in-school and afterschool writing initiatives for Maine youth.
