Event description: Giving "Mother's Day a Microphone," The Listen To Your Mother Reading Series is a unique national event that showcases moving, socially relevant, and humorous stories about a range of modern mothering experiences. In each city, the series will feature local established writers and performers taking the stage with local first time writers and performers as they share poignant personal essays in front of live audiences, making for an unforgettable experience and celebrating motherhood in a meaningful new way.

Born of the blogosphere and mothers who publish online, the Listen To Your Mother Reading Series is changing the way America celebrates Mother's Day, one story at a time. Started in Madison, Wisconsin in 2010 by humorist and blogger Ann Imig, it has evolved into an exciting national storytelling series and every show?s process, from auditions to rehearsals to the final performances, are shared online via social media. Each show/city also donates 10% of all ticket proceeds to local non-profit causes that support women and families in need.
