Haunted: Steven Abney, “Personal Demons”

Ghost stories can be a lot of things: visceral, frightening, unnerving. But very seldom do they drift into territory that could be described as intimate or personal. Storyteller Steven Abney took the stage at our Nov. 12, 2016 live event, “Haunted”, and delivered a ghost story that was as equally suited for Ghost Hunters as it was for Dr. Phil. This spine-tingling tale of a haunted house and one man’s struggle to shake loose of his demons continues to be one of the most unique All Y’all stories told to date.

Coming Soon: All Y’all Live, “The Skin I’m In”
On Saturday, Aug. 26, All Y’all will return to the Woman’s Department Club for our 12th live storytelling event, “The Skin I’m In”. We are looking for six great stories of identity, acceptance (or the lack thereof) and the journey of self-discovery. If you think you’ve got a story for “The Skin I’m In”, please call our storyteller hotline at (318) 582-0665 and leave us a message.

Haunted: Christopher Louis Wilson, “A Wing and A Prayer”

On May 11, 2016, Christopher Louis Wilson published a post on his blog, From the Desk of Mr. Coach Wilson, about his lifelong love affair with Shreveport-based restaurant Wing Taxi. Within 24 hours, the post had gone viral in Shreveport, with thousands of views and social shares leading the owner of the restaurant to reach out to Wilson. As it turns out, Wilson isn’t the only Shreveporter obsessed with the quirky, gypsy-like wing joint. For many locals, the taste of home is Cajun ranch lemon pepper garlic Parmesan.

For our November 2016 live storytelling event, “Haunted”, Wilson took the stage and shared a surprisingly personal, heartfelt story of love, loss and yearning.
