Tell a story at Terry Tales (This coming Monday, Feb 8), and get a free book.

Yes, it’s that easy. As mentioned before, I keep getting free books from, and we’ve decided to give them away at the Terry tales.

Here, we’re hoping a few people will volunteer 5 to 10 minutes of their time to tell the rest of the crowd a small story. It would be lovely to get maybe 4 or so stories on monday. If more volunteer then that’s great, but we may have to still limit it (you can always come out the next time, since we’re hoping to make this a regular event). Afterall, we do have time constraints, and it was also kind of cool to, you know, sit and chat.

But basically, if you tell a story, you’ll get to pick from a pile of books, and take one home.

Anyway, that’s:

Terry tales. Feb 8 (monday) 5 – 7pm, Global Lounge (2205 Lower Mall (in the Marine Drive Residence) – there’s a pond in front of the main door). Facebook event page here.
