Meeting Time/Place: Storytime: Sundays at 9 PM in Upstairs Paresky
Storytime is a place to build community around diversity through vulnerability and compassion. In the past, the event has occurred weekly in upstairs Paresky on Sunday at 9pm with a speaker that shares a story of their choosing. Board members facilitate the selection and preparation of storytellers. Questions and casual conversation often follow stories. Last year was a tumultuous one, as the board wrestled with its role in addressing issues of inclusivity in Storytime’s mission and structure. The consensus is to take a “Storytime Sabbatical” in the fall to collect community feedback on the role that they wish Storytime to fill in the Williams community and make changes for the spring semester.
