Dan Hull runs around the Valley making storytelling happen. Surely he does other things, but the mere fact that he hosts Yarnball, a weekly storyfest at Lawn Gnome Publishing (as well as the monthly Storyline at Space 55), demonstrates his commitment of time, energy, and expertise. This week, Hull will wrangle performers who’ve responded to the prompt “cars.”

Help marinate Phoenix in the spicy brew of live literature at 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, at 905 North Fifth Street. Admission is $5. The event is promoted as simultaneously all-ages and uncensored, which is so granola it feels as though the past (and current) 18 wars didn’t happen. For more information, visit or If you need to call the Gnome, call 602-682-5825.

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
