Stonehurst Place supports storytellers’ Georgia Tour

The Unchained Tour of Georgia plays Atlanta’s
Manuel’s Tavern this Thursday and Friday, 8pm

MothUp Unchained Tour
Internationally acclaimed storytelling network, The Moth, hits Atlanta with The Unchained Tour and two unique evenings of entertainment. The tour features both national and local storytellers from The Moth; these are not your grandfather’s storytellers but rather weavers of contemporary tales drawn from personal experience.

“New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket”

Wall Street Journal

Thursday tickets are available here (Friday is sold out!) and a preview of one local storyteller is here (scroll down to ‘Weddin’ Dress’ – just guess who sent Shannon to the alterations studio!)

Stonehurst Place is proud to offer complimentary lodging to one of the tour’s road-weary storytellers, who will be glad to climb down from that Bluebird school bus and into one of our lush beds! (Bus? Huh? More here…)

Joining us in providing beds for these weary heads are our Atlanta lodging friends, the Artmore Hotel and Ponce de Leon Place Bed & Breakfast. Thank you so much!

and the winner is … Stonehurst Place!
