    1. Seven female storytellers took the stage at the newly renovated Loft theater 1 – to tell their individual stories of feminism, teen age pregnancy, marriage & divorce, freedom as a Latina woman, perils of birth control, death of a mother & being adopted out, missing a birth sister; a lesbian couple white water rafting, and being a fat girl in Arizona. Very funny, poignant, touchingly heartfelt true stories from women brave enough to get up on stage and tell it all. 3/4 full house at the Loft tonight, with Odyssey Storytelling founder Penelope Starr present as well.
