The Bounty of the StorySlam

Thanks to our friends at the Free Library, with whom we’re presenting tomorrow night’s StorySlam at World Cafe Live, we’re going to be able to offer what is quite possibly the largest prize every given away to a StorySlam winner.  As you no doubt know, we routinely give away some of the most fabulous items a dollar can buy, but for tomorrow night’s Hidden Talents StorySlam, each storyteller will also receive his or her very own copy of this year’s One Film: Basquiat. The overall winner for the night–and here’s where it gets really good–will waltz away with the following incredible prize package:

A copy of Basquiat, copy of The Soloist, and two tickets to the One Book, One Philadelphia closing event, which includes a reception at Maggiano’s (private) and reserved seating at the lecture with  Steve Lopez (open to the public).

Wow.  Just wow.

Hike up your britches and get to shoveling.  You’ll need to dig out in time to get to World Cafe Live tomorrow night:
