Stories From a Big Chair “Reinventing” Thursday, Oct 28, 6:00-8:00pm This fall at Aiken Center for the Arts, we will be telling stories from a big chair…and you are invited. Join us as we share perspectives, build points of connection, and unearth the wisdom and inspiration amongst us. Each evening, storytelling will be accompanied by wine paired with the theme of the evening as host Gary Finnan guides us through an evening of storytelling. Wine courtesy of Solovino. SFBC is a perfect fit for all people who are excited to engage with the power and craft of storytelling. OUR stories are true as remembered by the storyteller and always told live from the BIG CHAIR… “SFBC reminds me how fascinating, brave, complex, and fragile we are. We have so much in common, yet every sit-in is unique” says Gary Finnan. In a supportive space where people can listen and be heard …the voice of human experience guides the evening. Where will it take us? Limited seating, reserve your chair for $20. - “Reinventing” This evening is dedicated to “Reinventing,” where new tricks are for dogs of any age.
