7 Stories is returning on Friday, Jan. 26, 2024 at the Highline Heritage Museum on the theme “Brush With Greatness” or “You Only Live Once (Y.O.L.O.).”

This will be the first session of the New Year, and will start at 7 p.m. at the museum (map below).

Who hasn’t been held captive by a powerful, funny, or frightening story?  ‘7 Stories’ is a night of such storytelling – to build community, empathy, and celebrate our diversity.

  • Each 7 Stories night has a theme and storytellers sign up and are selected in advance. Real stories are spellbinding and raw.
  • They are not a theatrical performance, but true life stories from your friends, acquaintances, or someone you have never met.
  • These stories are told from the heart.
  • Each program is introduced by our host for the evening, with a short bio of each storyteller.

Please consider sharing your true story…in the spirit of community and friendship. We will coach/help you as much as you would like. To sign up, fill out the form online or email [email protected].

Parents should use discretion when deciding whether to include children. Not all stories will be appropriate for young listeners.

Organizers can help coordinate the logistics of a 2-person bilingual story. Storytellers can apply through a very short application process.
