The Moth is a not-for-profit organization devoted to storytelling, whose programs feature the personal stories of people from all walks of life. In this spirit, we invited several speakers, including Moth StorySLAM champion Peter Aguero, musician Kyp Malone, This American Life contributor Starlee Kine, Witness to Hunger's Barbie Izquierdo, and artist Antony Zito to share their quintessential American story. The evening, hosted by author Jonathan Ames, was inspired by the special exhibitions American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life, 1765-1915 and Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans.
