Have you ever met an honest-to-goodness celebrity? All Y’all dedicated an entire night of live storytelling to the topic of celebrity encounters at our June 2015 event, “Brush With Fame.” Tom Ayres’s story from that night – a well-told tale of an airport encounter with an embattled sports icon – was one of the hits of the night. It made us think about all sorts of things: the drawbacks of a life spent in the public eye, the value of a shoulder to lean on, and the commonalities of the human experience.
