In grateful response to all who have supported HSA in years past through membership, donations, or thoughtful participation, we would like to give back to our treasured community with this special free concert featuring Laura Simms. 

Join Healing Story Alliance for a storytelling concert designed by master storyteller Laura Simms to celebrate HSA's rejuvenation in the New Year. The event will be a tapestry of personal stories and fragments of myths uncovering the heart of joy in everyday experience. These stories within stories are woven into a remarkable Kurdish Jewish fairy tale called "What a Beautiful Road."
