Ex Fabula is very excited to be teaming up with Milwaukee band Panalure, again for our second year and a special night of music and storytelling. Panalure and Ex Fabula Storytellers come together again in “Cabin Fever, Songs for a Cold Winter Night” at Anodyne Coffee. The show will present songs and stories of first love, isolation, longing and escape, inviting you to come in from the cold of the Wisconsin winter and reflect on what it means to hunker down and go inside, both physically and emotionally.

This week, we’re sharing stories mirroring our "Cabin Fever" event, featuring stories of first love and winter snow. In November 2015, Linda Martin took to the stage for Waukesha Reads' “Coming of Age” storytelling event. Linda takes us back a few decades to her high school years when young love seemed so much simpler than it is now. Linda shared the story of her first love and her “first time” with a boy named Jimmy, a boy she “went with” and who dared to take her young heart further than any boy had.

Our second story comes from Jean Andrews who recalled growing up in Southeastern Wisconsin and the winter snowfalls that would create snow hills as tall as she was. However, when she moved to Upper Michigan, theose winters made our snowfalls look like child’s play.

Don’t let the weather keep you home next Tuesday, February 16 because Ex Fabula is heading to 3041 North for our February StorySlam, "Fatherhood." Whether you have a father, are a father or missed out on either, we all have a story about fatherhood. Come on out for a night that we hope will be both emotional and entertaining. Visit Ex Fabula for tickets and/or more information on this and all other upcoming February events.
