"Your Story, Well Told" a Storytelling Event
hosted by Corey Rosen

Wednesday, May 25, 2022 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Does your storytelling sometimes feel stuck? Improvisation to the rescue! Actor, visual effects producer and Bay Area author Corey Rosen comes to the Mechanics Institute on May 25, 2022 in celebration of his debut book, Your Story, Well Told: Creative Strategies to Develop and Perform Stories that Wow an Audience. (Mango Publishing Group, 2021). (#1 New Release in Speech and Public Speaking), which teaches how you can get past telling “the same” stories and find stories worth telling from your own life.

In this special event, Rosen will lead the audience in activities and exercises for remembering and developing their own performance-worthy stories.  He will share stories of his own and will be joined by special guest storytellers for a one-of-a-kind evening, followed by a book signing.
