A special night
From The Moth they highlight:
Chicago is a city rich in diversity and culture. The Spanish language is embedded in the heart of the city and The Moth looks forward to encouraging Chicago's Latino storytellers to share their stories this Wednesday.
“We ask that those who want to participate prepare a five-minute tale of a true story about the heart of every home, the kitchen. The one that smells like cupcakes just out of the oven, dulce de leche, or fried malanga. Stovetop disasters or microwave splendors. The secret of the chef… and the secrets of the family. The busiest room in the party. Where everyone washes their own plate…and where what doesn't kill you, makes you fat,” underlined the SLAM organizers.
