Giuliana Serena is head Beekeeper at The Bee, a lovingly competitive storytelling forum in Salt Lake City. The following story was recorded in June at The Leonardo, where 10 brave souls shared their stories about The Wild. The storyteller is Adam Stewart, who won the night with a story about how an unexpected meeting with a mountain lion helped him survive his divorce:
The next Bee: Wednesday night, August 12, at the Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 E., Salt Lake City. Doors at 7. The theme this time is Lost & Found.
How to participate: you can come and just enjoy or put your name in the hat to tell a story. Ten storytellers picked at random from a hat have five minutes each to tell a true tale, on the theme of the night, without notes. To get tickets and put your name in the hat, visit TheBeeSLC.org. The Bee usually sells out, so we recommend getting your tickets early.

The Leonardo hosts an interactive, exploratory workshop space called the Tinkering Garage, which gives young visitors an opportunity to develop creative and problem solving skills through building, engineering, and tinkering. Many of the projects in the garage are furnished with materials supplied by their UpCycle re-use project.
