Storytelling Event: Stories From New York and Beyond
The Life Story Club invites you to a special summer storytelling event with a group of Older Adults from Morningside Heights. A real, New York-style “Soup for the Soul” experience, the event will feature a line-up of Club members who will each perform a short reading of a life story. Please come watch and cool down with an afternoon of hilarious, heart-warming, and meaningful storytelling.

The Life Story Club is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting healthy aging and reducing social isolation of older adults. We do this through the club meetings we run, where participants can socialize and make friends through sharing stories. We've worked with various community-based organizations, including public libraries, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, as well as hundreds of individuals to preserve the life stories of their loved ones.
Linnea, our workshop facilitator, has a Master’s in Creative Writing and before making the move to New York, she taught English Composition at Minnesota State University. Over the past four years, Linnea has run numerous creative writing and storytelling workshops in Minnesota and New York. She currently lives in Brooklyn with her dog, Icarus, where she enjoys park-hopping and getting lost in museums.
