Lansing United Book Club with Karen Veaner

January 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

NEW YEAR – NEW BOOK!

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of a storytelling phenomenon, The Moth presents 45 unforgettable true stories drawn from the best ever told on their stages: All These Wonders: True Stories About Facing the Unknown.


From the introduction by Catherine Burns, Artistic Director & Editor:

“…bearing witness to a stranger’s unfiltered story is an act of tremendous compassion.  To listen with an open heart and an open mind and try to understand what it’s like to be them…takes real courage…

Some of the stories are lighthearted and fun, but others are more challenging…

…when we dare to listen, we remember there is no ‘other,’ there is only us, and what we have in common will always be greater than what separates us.” 


Jump in any time. Each story stands by itself, and will be used as a starting place for sharing stories of our own. Books available in the airlock after Christmas. Suggested donation: $15. Also available on Kindle.
