Roadhouse Storytellers

Pittsboro Roadhouse General StoreI am the producer of Roadhouse Storytellers at the renowned Pittsboro Roadhouse on US 64 in downtown Pittsboro. These storytelling shows are at 7 PM on the third Thursdays of odd-numbered months. The storytelling venue includes full meal service and a full bar, so plan to get there before 6:30 to order your dinner and first round of drinks before the stories begin. There is no cover charge. Our storytellers tell edgy, family friendly true tales and tall tales. What a night on the town in Pittsboro, NC!

The next Roadhouse Storytellers will be November 16. That night we will feature librarians telling edgy stories about their experiences as librarians. Since librarians are among my heroes, I’m thrilled to be emceeing this event, and while I am not a librarian, I will have a few anecdotes about the librarians who moved me the most.
