Our May Story Slam winner Cynthia Angst and emcee Mikey Gleason

Cynthia Angst edged out the competition with her story about the good and bad luck of renting apartments on the Main Line and eventually moving to West Chester. Cynthia will be returning the Grand Slam in November.

The theme of "Luck" brought out stories that expressed the different ways we view both good luck and bad luck in our lives. We heard about how at a low point in her life, Shari had the good luck to find a job that gave meaning to her life. We heard from Nick about his reaction to hearing about the death of his mother. Sara told us about her good luck camping in Iceland. Vicki told about her dating life and how she must have been "good luck" for her ex-boyfriends. Kyle told about the good luck of meeting his future wife. Mikey expressed his longing for a ham sandwich.

Thanks to all our storytellers, the judges, and the audience who cheered everyone on.

Our next Story Slam, on Tuesday, June 13th, is themed "Foreign Soil," so think about your best travel story - whether you traveled to another country or maybe you immigrated to the USA. Tickets can be ordered by clicking HERE.
