On the first Tuesday of every month, a congregation gathers on the second floor of the Gaylord Building in downtown Lockport for what Barbara Eberhard calls “a great way to spend an evening.”

Eberhard and Lisa Colleen are the duo who brought live storytelling to Lockport under the banner of Inspired! live lit in October 2018. Each month, they have five storytellers share personal narratives — some funny, some solemn, some a combination of the two.
