Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with an intimate audience in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind. This month’s storyteller: Mary Raftopoulos

Mary was born in South Africa to South African parents of Greek heritage. After raising a family and running a small business, Mary recounts her decision to emigrate to Australia and the reasons why she and her husband left their homeland. She reflects on how her grandparents left Greece to settle in South Africa at the beginning of the 20th Century and the parallels of their journey.
