River Country Monologues










RIVER COUNTRY MONOLOGUES

Jheny Nieto, Daniela Zehr and Nina Lanctot, in collaboration with the Sexual and Domestic Assault Shelter of Three Rivers, are working on collecting stories about WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A WOMAN (in English and Spanish) in counties around the St. Joe River. We believe that sharing stories of joy and pain, of strength and vulnerability, anonymously, is one way to build understanding and hope for women in our communities.

Our first step is hosting a CONVERSATION CAFE this coming Thursday, June 25th, at World Fare in Three Rivers at 7 pm. All females are welcome! We will be collecting anonymous stories or poems, 500 words or less. These can be sent to Editors at Nofsingers, 53301 Bair Lane, Marcellus, MI between now and July 9, 2009.

Our second step is auditions for readers which will take place at World Fare on Thurday, July 30th from 6-9:30 pm. Readers will not read their own stories, but stories that come from other women in our community. Readings will be in Spanish and English, with translation.

River Country Monologues will be shared in a performance on Sunday evening, August 23rd, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 321 N. Main Street, Three Rivers at 7:30 pm. A free will offering will be taken to benefit Domestic and Sexual Abuse Services of Southwest Michigan.

If you have questions, please contact Florence Church at 269-816-5945.

peace,
Nina

  1. About twenty women came to the Conversation Cafe on Thursday evening ranging in age from 21 through 84 and from as near as Three Rivers, Constantine, Goshen, Edwardsburg and Marshall and with countries of origin as far as Argentine, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico. All women are encouraged to send an anonymous story or poem about your life experiences as a woman by July 10! We have some great stories percolating already! Nina
