Talking about mothers is fair game as a national program seeks Sacramento storytellers for the live "Listen To Your Mother" show.
The selected storytellers will perform live on Mother's Day May 12 at the Crest Theater. The show will be recorded with segments available via YouTube. Twenty-three other cities will also host live shows. This is the first year Sacramento is involved.
The stories can come from mothers or be about mothers. Proceeds from the event fund the Sacramento non-profit 916 Ink, which promotes a love of written language among young people.
