On a night of stunning stories from first to last, Audrey Lopez won our 2016 Lancaster Story Slam GRAND SLAM with her story about finding her voice as an undocumented immigrant in America. Audrey's story moved the judges - and the entire audience! Audrey won the Storyteller's Trophy, along with gift certificates to Tellus360 and Buzz Cafe, and an autographed copy of the Historic Downtown Lancaster Coloring Book. Congratulations Audrey!
All eleven storytellers told insightful personal stories to the packed audience at Tellus360. We heard about training to be a doctor, learning a family secret, overcoming a phobia of treadmills, teaching English and soccer in Colombia, accepting one's Jewish ancestry, fighting for one's cause, and celebrating the epic Irish movie, The Quiet Man.
