‘Stoop’ storytellers share personal tales of life at Johns Hopkins

The Stoop Storytelling Series returns to the East Baltimore campus on Friday, May 4, when seven storytellers will get seven minutes each to share true, personal tales about close calls, humbling experiences, great victories and crushing defeats—in short, anything that shines a light on what life is like at the renowned medical institution.

Among the confirmed storytellers are Robert Montgomery, director of the Comprehensive Transplant Center; Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa, associate professor of neurological surgery and oncology, neuroscience, and cellular and molecular medicine; and Chris Craft, co-director of the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit.

“Hopkins: A World Inside a City, II” is presented by the Office of Cultural Affairs.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in Turner Auditorium with music by Caleb Stine and food available from Clementine restaurant, followed at 7 by the show, for which three storytellers will be selected from the audience. Advance tickets are recommended; $15, $10 with Johns Hopkins ID (two maximum). Tickets at the door are $20, $15 with Johns Hopkins ID (two maximum). Go to stoopstorytelling.com or call 800-838-3006.
