Join us on Thursday, May 18, as we gather together for a magical Night of 1,000 Stories, filled with art, authors, and plenty of adventure.
You’ll hear tales from 826 Boston student authors, enjoy food and drinks and art, and get a chance to hear from our featured speaker Jamie Hector. You may remember him as Marlo Stanfield on The Wire, but Jamie Hector is also an author and the founder of the nonprofit Moving Mountains.
