Tales From the West End explores our West End community through stories about our common past.

Every third Tuesday of the month, JJ Bean Coffee Roasters hosts an evening of community storytelling. The event takes place in JJ Bean’s beautiful location within the recently restored 1930s heritage building formerly known as “Maxine’s Hideaway” at the corner of Bidwell and Davie Streets.

This month writer, historian and musician Aaron Chapman is their featured story teller. Aaron has tales to tell from his award winning 2015 book Live at the Commodore. Listen, sketch and bring your own stories and historic photographs of the West End to share with the community.
