Talkin' bout a (r)evolution

The Moth, the acclaimed story-telling organization, and PEN, the acclaimed literary organization, join forces to present “You Say You Want a (R)evolution: Stories about Change,” this Thursday, April 30, as part of the PEN World Voice Festival of International Literature.

The event, fittingly, will be held at the DUMBO-based Galapagos Art Space (16 Main St.)

While most of the Moth events that occur on a regular basis include anonymous New Yorkers with an interesting story to share, participants at the DUMBO event include such literary heavyweights as Salwa Al Neimi, Jonathan Ames, Petina Gappah, László Garaczi, and Salman Rushdie.

Tickets are $30 for the 7 p.m. show.

The Moth next comes to Brooklyn on May 4 with a StorySLAM at Park Slope’s Southpaw (125 Fifth Ave.). At a StorySLAM, audience participants share a story without notes based on a theme, and judges pick the winner. This event’s theme is “Falling.”

Doors open at 7:30 p.m., with the stories starting on stage at 8 p.m. Tickets are $7.
