Big Shorts was our live storytelling series at Stanford's largest, coziest café, the Coho. Modeled on storytelling series like The Moth in New York and Porchlight in San Francisco, Big Shorts featured faculty, students and accomplished Bay Area authors telling true stories. In the winter and spring of 2012 we had ten shows on Tuesday nights. You can now watch selections from these performances right here just by clicking on the images to the right.
