If you’ve ever told a killer anecdote, the kind that you’ve shared with enough rapt dinner party audiences to have all its details and nuances memorized, then Pivot might be a perfect showcase for your raconteurial skills. The local storytelling event is back at the Washington Cracker Co. Building next week, showcasing a collection of real-life tales both happy and sad, humorous and reflective. The only catch: The storytellers must adhere to a given theme (sometimes literally, sometimes loosely) and this time it’s Full Circle — think of all the great, out-of-nowhere punchlines this could inspire. The roster includes TV anchor Melissa Luck, poet Emily Gwinn, Northwest Public Broadcasting news manager Scott Leadingham and more.
