Sandra Torres and Charlotte Muth of The Moth, with Noam Bramson and Angela Derecas Taylor

A sell-out crowd of hundreds for The Moth’s Westchester StorySLAM debut here in New Rochelle, a wonderful kick-off to this weekend’s ArtsFest and a sign of our community’s growing cultural dynamism.  Thank you to for alighting in New Rochelle, and thank you to my colleague Angela Derecas Taylor — herself a storyteller who has appeared on the Moth MainStage and been featured on The Moth Radio Hour — for making this great event happen.
