February Theme: “SLOW SIMMER”

Posted on
Prose of Pie has been the Hudson Valley’s most popular monthly storytelling series for over 4 years. In February, we’re bringing you a brand new collaboration with the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art. HVCCA is the region’s premier museum for contemporary art and its relationship to social issues. We’ll be filling their beautiful exhibition space with true human tales on the evening’s theme: Slow Simmer. Soak in the stories surrounded by the best contemporary art on view in the Hudson Valley.
When:  February 10, Doors 7:30pm, Show 8pm
             1701 Main St – Peekskill
ABOUT THE THEME: Sometimes passion takes time. Remember how long it took you to get up the nerve to approach that crush! What was it that led you to fall in love with an artist, or make art your life’s pursuit? How long did it take to master your field of expertise, or maybe you still ‘fake it til you make it’? Did you find a hobby that makes the rest of life bearable? An enduring commitment to making the world a better place or was it an infatuation long past? It takes time to fall hard – for a partner, for your calling, for a pastime. We want to hear about the long slow road you followed on the way to your passion.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Join us to listen to storytellers and humor writers form around the region tell true personal tales on the monthly theme in a Moth-inspired format. Plus opportunities to participate if you dare!
PLUS a pie bake-off: To start the evening, you’ll indulge in a sampling of pies made by local “pie-trepreneurs” and vote for your favorite between stories. You’ll please your belly and warm your soul.
