Story Slam All Stars

Master of Ceremonies Jeff Moran kicks off a Cabin Fever Story Slam in 2016.

With most Jacksonites stuck at home, "cabin fever" is a more apt idiom than it's ever been.

At 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 5 the Teton County Library's Cabin Fever Story Slam will return early for a virtual showcase of local storytelling talent. A link to the YouTube live stream of the show will be shared on the library's Facebook page and at 10 minutes before the event.

Today's slam will feature veteran storytellers Anne Marie Wells, Den Binderup, Cassandra Lee, Jenna Mahaffie, Jose Rivas, Ryan Nourai, Mac Dukart and Jim Ross. As always, Jackson's favorite emcee, Jeff Moran, will share a story and introduce each storyteller. 

The theme for the night is "Sharing."

Because of the virtual platform, the bill for the night expands beyond current Jackson residents. Lee was one of the first "Cabin Fever All Stars," but she now resides in Montana.

"It's nice that we can include our friends who have moved away on this platform," said Leah Shlachter, the founder of the series and the Library's Adult Program Coordinator.

As always, the rules of the slam persist: the story must be true, you can't use notes and there is a 5-minute time limit. 

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated the virtual Story Slam was scheduled for tonight. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, May 5.
