From our Fall 2018 intern Mary Rayer:

It’s hard to believe my time at Tell Me A Story is ending. One of my favorite parts of this internship was helping at the live show (shout out to Shot Tower Coffee, you’re all wonderful!) Thank you to everyone I met in the community for being so kind and welcoming. In closing, here are my top 10 stories (in alphabetical order) from 2018, including some of my favorite quotes and random commentary.
