The Inaugural Wine Country Spoken Word Festival (Words are important, come see the people who use them wisely) The Inaugural Wine Country Spoken Word Festival is on it’s way…it arrives in Northern California’s Wine Country October 13th, 14th & 15th. The backdrop is historic downtown Petaluma, Ca. (less than an hour north of San Francisco) the town where ‘American Graffiti' was filmed! This is the only Festival of it’s kind in the country!!! Picture; the Gitlit crowd — meets PoetrySlam — meets The Moth —meets Storytelling. On Friday the 13th there will be a special gala at Della Fattoria’s brand new hip & funky party space. Then we head up the block to Brewster’s Outdoor Beer Garden. Think southern BBQ meets California produce. We couldn’t think of a better way to close out your Friday the 13th than with some good ol’ fashioned Ghost Stories told, around the fire, by some of the area’s best tellers: Cathrine Fairly, Amanda McTigue, Hal McCown, and Brandon Spars are the first ones up…but will they be the last… Saturday, October-14th Just about every type of spoken genre we could think of, is here: Poetry, Storytelling, Solo Performance, Stand-up Comedy, & Authors along with Story Swaps, Slams & even a Liars contest. *Special Guest Saturday* Willy Claflin-regular headliner National Storytelling Festival at The Hotel Petaluma Saturday closes at The Mystic Theatre where you will get to see all-3 of our headliners: (NY Times Best Selling Author) Sarah Vowell, Steve Connell (performed for President Obama, the U.
