Stories from The Stoop: Aishah Al Fadhalah


Here is a Stoop Story from Aishah Al Fadhalah about her experiences as an immigrant in the US and how the Mera Kitchen Collective was born.

Some events coming up:

Edgar Allan Poe Festival and Awards is happening Oct 2 and 3. It's two days of books, music and art -- all happening at the Edgar Allan Poe house and museum at 203 North Amity St. in Baltimore.

And the Center for Neighborhood Innovation at the renovated Hoen Lithograph is offering all sorts of community supports, as well as live music and food from vendors … from 1 to 4 pm Sat. Oct. 2. That’s at 2101 East Biddle Street in Baltimore.

And finally, there is a LIVE stoop storytelling event coming up in a little over two week: on Monday, Oct. 18 at 7 pm at Baltimore Center Stage. The theme is “Didn’t See ThatComing! Stories about shocks, surprises, and real-life plot twists.” We have a link to how to get tickets for that, as well.
