Tickets and Reservations

Created over seven years ago, How to Build a Fire is a community storytelling series where a diverse group of individuals share real-life, personal narratives centered around a different theme each month. At times funny, at times sad, their stories weave together a broad illustration of the human experience. How to Build a Fire takes place at Open Source Gallery -a welcoming, nurturing, intimate, safe environment- where, monthly, one can see a new exhibition installed by an array of up-and-coming and established visual artists. HTBAF will recur the last Friday of the month with a new storyteller. This series is co-sponsored by Open Source and The Puffin Foundation.

Jen Fitzgerald is a poet, writer, photographer, activist and native New Yorker. She received her MFA in Poetry at Lesley University. Her first collection of Poetry, “The Art of Work” was published by Noemi Press in 2016. Her work has been featured in such outlets as PBS Newshour, The Nation, Boston Review, among others. She lives and works on Staten Island, with her twelve year old daughter.
