Karen at SAM Re-Mix

This Friday, June 1, I’ll be performing at Seattle Art Museum’s event called Re-Mix, a massive evening filled with performances including…THE STORY SLAM, curated by Christa Bell.

I’ve been writing a new series of stories for this event (we have approximately 5 minutes to tell each story) and I’m thrilled to work in this form. More information about the event:
