For five years, the Clover Foundation has been supporting the health and education of 80 children in the slums of Kampala, Uganda. Their lives are changed at Clover where they receive hearty meals and emergency medical care, have the chance to be curious and play, and learn to speak and read English. All go on to a primary school supported by Clover donors.
The theme of the event and our stories is “Spark!”

Fugitive Stories brings the craft of true stories told live to suburban audiences (Acton, Arlington, Concord, Framingham, Lincoln). Fugitive’s featured tellers captivate our audiences — they are some of the best in the country. Most are Moth StorySLAM winners and many are GrandSLAM champions. Tonight, three members of the Clover community will be sharing their stories as well.
Fugitive Stories’ featured tellers are:
Janelle is a writer, performer, story coach, and the owner of High Maintenance, her handy-woman business. She co-produces Harpy, a storytelling show in Somerville that features the voices of women and femmes. When she isn’t doing these things, she’s remodeling her vintage camper, powerlifting, or attempting to casually talk to her two daughters about consent.
Rachel is a Senior Lecturer in Communications at Simmons College where she teaches storytelling, journalism, health communication, and media studies. A political junkie, she blogs at politicsinpink.com waxing eloquent, and at times angry, about feminism, politics, and popular culture. She lives in central Massachusetts with her husband, two kids, two cats, two lizards, and numerous dust bunnies.
Aaron is a filmmaker, a Moth GrandSLAM winning storyteller, and occasional host of the Moth StorySLAMS in Boston. His films have been featured at Sundance Film Festival, the New York Times, and his film “Record/Play” was shortlisted for an Oscar. Aaron is the host and producer of the podcast “First Time, Long Time” where he tells stories about sports for people who may not like sports.
