Our first Passim story slam of the 2017-2018 season is on the theme "SPOOKED." Bring your best true spooky tales to legendary Club Passim for an evening of engaging entertainment and dinner and drinks if you choose.
Our featured teller for the night will be Sam Baltrusis, an author who has penned seven historical-based ghost books, including "Ghosts of Boston" and "Ghosts of Salem." He has been featured on several national TV shows including Destination America's "Haunted Towns" on Salem and served as Boston's paranormal expert on the Biography Channel's "Haunted Encounters." Baltrusis moonlights as a tour guide and launched the successful ghost tours, Boston Haunts and the Wicked Salem Tour. His latest book, "13 Most Haunted Hotels & Inns of New England," is slotted for release in October 2017. Learn more at sambaltrusis.com.

What is a Story Slam?
A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Story slammers sign up on that night to tell a 5-minute true story on the evening's theme. Ten names are drawn at random from a box. A team of five volunteer judges evaluates how well each story is told, how well it is constructed, how well the story explores, connects and/or reveals some truth about the theme, and how well it honors the time limit. The top-scorer is awarded a prize and this winner, the runner-up and the audience-selected favorite earn an opportunity to compete to perform at the "Big Mouth Off" at the end of the slam season in the spring!
