Miss Shannan — local host of The Moth — will be our host for an evening of river stories from FMR and our community. Join us October 1!

Want a sneak preview of the stories you'll hear at our virtual fall gala on October 1? We'll hear from a musician who toured the Mississippi by canoe to discover not only his muddy roots, but his true love; a family who found a sense of place in the river, and a place to grieve the impossible; and two storytellers who know the layers of history at Bdote, the sacred confluence of rivers.  >>
