If you're a fan of radio storytelling programs like The Moth Radio Hour, you won't want to miss a special storyteller's showcase event in Bakersfield Saturday December 7th. The Beale Memorial Library, in association with Bakersfield Toastmasters Clubs and Valley Public Radio will present  "Miles to Go Before I Sleep" an evening of true stories, told before a live audience.

It's lunchtime at the Sanger High School Cafeteria. But instead of hundreds of teenagers, the room on this Saturday is filled with ordinary Valley residents of all ages and ethnicities, some writers, and a handful of theatre professionals from LA's Cornerstone Theatre. And even though many of them just ate, the conversation quickly turns to the issue of the day… hunger.
