Today we get the backstory from the co-founders of The Stoop Storytelling Series, live performances in which ordinary people in Baltimore tell true stories from their lives. The Series is about to start its eleventh season. What makes for a good story? What makes for a good storyteller? Do you have to be an extrovert? Jessica Henkin and Laura Wexler will share their thoughts. 

Tune in to Jessica Henkin and Laura Wexler's weekly Stoop podcast or catch them at the Baltimore Book Festival this Saturday, Sept. 24, from 5:30-7pm.  They will present “The Story Behind the Story: Adventures with Baltimore Writers," a live show  featuring seven local scribes telling true, personal tales about researching, reporting, and writing.
