Blue Gonk Café

With the release of More Tales from the Blue Gonk Café slated for early this year, it seems a good time to take a look at the original Tales from the Blue Gonk Café. So here is the deal:

The Blue Gonk Café decided to try something different. The owner invited a variety of top class storytellers to come along for storytelling sessions, starting at breakfast. The idea was met with great enthusiasm and the storytellers signed up for each of the five sessions. Not everyone made it to every session but enough did to make the day a stunning success.

This is the breakfast menu… the same authors are repeated throughout the day.
