Idaho Street in downtown Boise. Featured storytellers Laura “Wally” Johnston, Arlen Andrew Donald and Clay Morgan venture forth with true stories on the theme, told live on stage and without notes, followed by an open story slam.

After an intermission with live music, an open story slam starts. In the story slam, names are drawn from a hat, and the chosen few have 5 minutes to tell a true story on the theme. The featured storytellers choose a winner, who receives a prize package of a free night’s stay at Boise Guest House and a gift certificate to Rediscovered Books.
“This is the perfect theme for the summer in Idaho, when everyone longs to go outside, and explore those wild drives and our state's strangest places,” says Jessica Holmes, the host and driving force behind Story Story Night. “But when we bust out the storied journey indoors, we go deep into all there is to offer here too.”
