“FISH TALES” : Saturday, February 3

On Saturday February 3, the Bowdoinham Public Library is partnering with a non-profit called “Community Plate” to bring you Story Sharing Pot Luck Supper followed by a “FishTales” Storytelling event. It’ll be another great community event as part of the Ice and Smelt Festival 2024. This year’s format will be slightly different than last year’s but the goal is the same- to gather in community, celebrate our shared experiences, facilitate conversation among neighbors, eat good food and hear good stories.

We will start with a Story Sharing Supper at 5:30 on the main floor of Merrymeeting Hall. Diners are asked to bring a food item (true “pot luck” style) along with the recipe and perhaps a story to accompany that recipe. Event hosts will provide prompts so we will share our meal while sharing stories around the table. 

At 7pm, following the supper, we will offer a live storytelling performance upstairs in the theater of Merrymeeting Hall.  The theme of the event is “Fish Tales” so maybe we will hear stories about the one that got away, or perhaps a tale of winter adventure. If you are interested in telling a 5-to-10-minute story, please contact the library. Storytellers will be finalized before the event. Stories must be appropriate for all ages.

The pot luck supper and the the “FishTales” Storytelling event are both free of charge, but seats are limited and reservations are required.  Reservations are available for the supper and storytelling event, and also for JUST the storytelling event. To find out more about our co-hosts, go to www.CommunityPlate.me. For reservations for the pot luck supper and/or the Story Telling event, go to this address.
