One of my favorite radio programs is The Moth. Ordinary people from all walks of life tell stories. We all have a story, right?

Crossroads Charlotte is holding its own homage to The Moth, called, what else, The Cankerworm, on November 30th, 2011, 8pm to 10pm, at UNC-Charlotte Student Union, 9201 University City Boulevard.

The theme this time around:

We know that many in our history displayed courage during the Civil Rights era and our country is better for it. There is still work to do – come out and tell a story on what you believe New Courage is in this day and age.

If you want to be on the list of storytellers, email arissaelamin11@gmail.com for guidelines. Put “cankerworm” in subject line.

Note: this event isn’t associated with The Moth. Just inspired by it. This is a free event.

I attended a previous installment of Cankerworm, in February at Central Coffee, and really enjoyed it. There were some great storytellers and a very supportive atmosphere.
