Chicago is a city rich in diversity and culture with people from all walks of life. The Spanish language is embedded into the heart of the city and The Moth hopes to encourage Chicago’s Spanish-speaking storytellers to share their tales this Wednesday. The theme of the night’s event will be “Cocinas” or kitchens. “We ask that those that wish to attend and share their stories prepare a five-minute narrative of a true story about the heart of every home- the kitchen. The one that smells like cupcakes just out of the oven, dulce de leche, or fried malanga. Stovetop disasters or microwave splendors. The chef's secret...and family secrets. The busiest room in the party. Where everyone washes her plate.... and where what doesn't kill, makes you fat.”, explains SLAM organizers.

Doors open at 6 pm CST at Lincoln Lodge located at 2040 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL.. Tickets are available for sale via The Moth website or available to purchase at the door. For more information on Spanish StorySLAM and to buy tickets visit:
