Last year at Storyfort, we had a standing-room only crowd — many of whom were left in tears. This year, we’ve assembled three amazing writers — recently and currently incarcerated — who will be presenting on FRIDAY MARCH 24 at 3:30 p.m., at the Idaho State History Museum. This event is completely FREE and requires no ticket or Treefort bracelet. The address: 610 Julia Davis Dr, Boise, ID 83702
Come listen to David Steece, Stephanie Wells, and others talk about life and justice — having experienced our complicated justice system first-hand. The event will be MC’d by the illustrious and hilarious Mark Person. Don’t miss it!
