Chicago’s 5th Show in 2016!

by Tracey on November 16, 2015

In the fall of 2011, Melisa and I were absolutely thrilled to be chosen to host a cool new show that had touched our hearts. Little did we know then that this new venture would become a life-changing ADventure for not only the two of us, but for 51 other Chicago area writers who would stand up on stage and share their stories with the world.

And while our world was changing through Listen To Your Mother, LTYM was changing, too. And growing!

Who would have thought that a single show in Madison, Wisconsin would grow to what will be in 2016, 41 cities across the United States, with the first show ever in Canada?!?

We never imagined the impact that hearing the live readings of these AMAZING people would have upon us…
