CANCELLED: Ideas Festival: Jenifer Hixson of the Moth
March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Jenifer Hixson is a Senior Director and one of the hosts of The Moth Radio Hour. Each year she asks hundreds of people to identify significant turning points in their lives—fumbles and triumphs, leaps of faith, darkest hours—and then helps them shape those experiences into story form for the stage. She falls a little bit in love with each storyteller and hopes you will, too. In 2000 she launched The Moth StorySLAM, which now has a full-time presence in twenty-nine cities in the United States, the UK, and Australia and provides more than six thousand individual storytelling opportunities for storytelling daredevils and loquacious wallflowers alike. Jenifer’s story “Where There’s Smoke” has been featured on The Moth Radio Hour and This American Life and was a part of The Moth’s first book, The Moth: 50 True Stories.Jenifer calls New Jersey home.
