Wild At Heart: Stories of Bold Moves and Big Choices
We’re all wild at heart. For our first show of 2023, we invited our superstar storytellers to tell us a story of courage. A brazen moment, a fearless act, a time you stuck it to the man (or woman), and did things their way. Maybe they got divorced or quit their job or had a one-night-stand. Maybe they spoke up or acted out. Took the road less traveled or demanded more. These six true tales from our multigenerational line-up will inspire you, surprise you, and entertain us all. Join us in community at the iconic Joe’s Pub for a life-affirming evening that’ll show you it’s never too late to make a bold move or big choice.
Team 20s: Shelbi Jones is the host and founder of Define Normal, a podcast where she discusses societal norms. She is currently writing her debut memoir.
Team 30s: Mona Kirschner is a Brazilian writer, linguist and businesswoman. Mona mostly writes sad essays but is at work on a screenplay about a unique type of sexual awakening.
Team 40s: Mercy Tullis-Bukhari is a poet, essayist, and the author of three books. She focuses on the female experience through explorations of individuality, motherhood, and sexuality.
