Talk20 Hutch is July 24, at 7 p.m. in the Hutchinson Public Library. The library is at 901 N. Main. This is the fourth installment of Talk20 Hutch. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Talk20 Hutch brings people together to learn, listen, and engage over a variety of topics. The event is free and open to the public. The after party is at Cool Beans, 209 N Walnut St, right off of Main, in downtown Hutchinson. People are encouraged to continue the conversation at Cool Beans after the structured event at the library.
Ten community members show 20 photographs, and speak for only 20 seconds per slide (a total of a little over 6 minutes). The slides are on a timer, so the format is set. The total time of the event is around 90 minutes, including a 10 minute intermission halfway through.
“It should be a great evening,” says Patsy Terrell, one of the organizers. “We’ll be hearing about everything from hiking the Grand Canyon to working in television in Los Angeles. Talk20 is a great opportunity to learn about people in our community who have fascinating stories to tell.”
