The theme of the event is “BELIEVE,” with the goal of inspiring listeners to realize that believing is not as simple as black and white.

Along with Murphy, other storytellers include Dr. Amelia Siders, Daniel Stewart, Heather Hudson, and Matt Soderquist. WTCM radio host Christal Frost is emceeing the event.

All proceeds support the work of the Children’s Advocacy Center, which serves as a safe haven for children and families suffering from the trauma of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and witness to violence. Learn more about the Children’s Advocacy Center here.

Here:Say, which Murphy notes is similar to “The Moth” program on National Public Radio, is a live storytelling show staged monthly from October through May at The Workshop Brewing Company in Traverse City’s Warehouse District.

The shows take place on the first Monday of each month for open mic storytelling, and on the third Monday of each month for mainstage shows.

SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT LOCAL NEWSPAPER: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever. Thank you so much for your support! -Jane Boursaw, Editor/Publisher, Old Mission Gazette
