Event Details

Open Book storytellers, Lyssa Wade and Lenny Bell, will share their stories with patrons.

Lenny Bell: When I left New Orleans, I was like a track star running his most important race. . . only I had no final destination. I’ve been looking for that place ever since. Early on, college was always just something to do for me. Looking back, I could have applied myself more academically, but I was just happy with being on the road less traveled.

Lyssa Wade: Lyssa was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and graduated from Grand View University. Lyssa has been acknowledged for her contributions to the Des Moines food scene and is a passionate food, water, land, and air protector.
