Every third Thursday of the month, Daniel Guzman brings together
authors, bloggers, comedians, and performers to share fiction and
nonfiction tales involving everyday objects and the secrets they
reveal about us. From the sublime to the surprising, each show is as diverse and tempting as the contents of a lost and found box.

She creates storytelling based art projects & walking tours and is the founder of the history art group Brooklyn Diggers. She occasionally over-shares on blogs like The Billfold, and has abandoned a half dozen Tumblr pages. If you’re interested in sharing half baked ideas, she’d be absolutely pleased to join in.
