This Friday night at Marmalade at Smokebrush (219 W. Colorado Ave. Ste. 210. 7 p.m.) The Story Project will hear the voices of veterans in a show titled “Bridging The Gap, Veterans Share Their Stories on and Off the Battlefield.” Co-Produced by Sharon Friedman and Hannah Rockey of Concrete Couch, the event is yet another sign that community storytelling is as compelling at a local level as it is on public radio with The Moth. We spoke to Friedman about why she started the event and where it’s heading.
