Program Description

Event Details

We have a special musical guest at storytime this week! Emma Butterworth, a native of Des Moines, will be joining us to play some music and read one of her favorite music-themed books before she performs on the mainstage at 80/35!

From her web site: Chicago songwriter Emma Butterworth is carving a niche for herself in the American indie scene with her uniquely soulful brand of indie-leaning folk rock. A keen storyteller and careful lyricist, she cuts straight to the heart of life’s big questions, examining moments of love, loss, growth, and self-acceptance with characteristic wit and wisdom.
