Join us to kick off our monthly meets and community events. This month, a StorySlam. The theme: “Get Your Yiayia’s Out”. Get ready to tell the stories of your grandmother in workshop fashion. Bring out your best voice, bring your photos, better yet, bring yiayia. Participants will battle it out to reach for top prize and boasting rites. Proceeds will benefit our not-for-profit organization, The Hellinida Foundation that works to educate, advocate and celebrate Hellenic women and girls around the world.
$10 gets you mezedakia, coffee/water/wine, and the a copy of the memoir: Being a Greek American Girl, the book behind the film My Big Fat Greek Wedding. (OK, not really, but if you grew up Greek, you know the story).
- Broom Tree Garden and Gallery – 27-20 Ditmars Boulevard (at corner of 28th Street and Ditmars Blvd). 1. Astoria, NY 11105
