THE MOTH MAINSTAGE IN PORTLAND

Tuesday, December 13 at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

Literary Arts and The Moth are bringing a new lineup of storytellers to Portland. Each Moth Mainstage show features five tellers who have developed their true stories with help from The Moth’s directors. Join us to celebrate the ability of stories to honor both the diversity and commonality of human experience, and to satisfy a vital human need for connection.

Our mission is to engage readers, support writers, and inspire the next generation with great literature.
