Oklahoma Voices: OKC StorySlam – Stories of Being Grounded (Dec 24, 2007)
This week we’re featuring excerpts from the Oklahoma City StorySlam, a monthly event that’s kind of like a poetry slam, except that participants tell stories related to a chosen theme. And at the end of the night, the audience votes for the best storyteller, and the winner gets a prize. Past themes have included “Really Bad Dates,” “Busted” and “Okie Nation.” The StorySlam we’re airing today took place last February as part of the WinterTales Storytelling Festival in Oklahoma City. Storytellers Molly O’Connor, J.C. Mahan, Lynn Baker, Janae Bernhard and Anita Baker share their tales on the topic of being “Grounded.” Also, Steve Liggett talks about his brush with death.

The next StorySlam is scheduled for Friday, January 4th at 8:30pm at the Istvan Art Gallery, 1218 North Western Ave. in Oklahoma City. The theme for the evening will be "Oops, I Did it Again: Blunders." You can get more information on the series and find out about future events by calling Stephen Kovash at 405-831-2874 or sending an e-mail to
