826LA’s Tell Me a Story Returns on June 7, 2017 to the Avalon

826LA invites you to celebrate the power of the written word at Tell Me a Story.

On June 7, 2017 at the Avalon in Hollywood, 826LA will be hosting our third annual event Tell Me a Story. This year a star-studded line up of comedians will be sharing their love of storytelling by recounting tales from their own childhoods or adventures in parenting.

Writing opens hearts, opens minds, and opens doors. For students living in poverty or struggling to learn English, the ability to write can help them succeed despite the statistics. Since opening its doors in 2005, 826LA has inspired more than 65,000 Los Angeles students to write. By raising crucial funds, Tell Me a Story will help keep 826LA’s programs free and accessible to the students who need them most.

Join us your favorite performers read, joke, and sing tales of childhood to benefit 826LA.
