IowaWatch hosts Nov. 12 online storytelling event, featuring adventurers

You can find adventure just about anywhere, from exploring your own neighborhood to getting lost in the wilderness. IowaWatch.org will celebrate adventures big and small in a virtual storytelling event via Zoom webinar Friday, November 12, at 7 p.m.

Iowans Lisa Rossi, Chuy Renteria, and John Richard will share true stories of adventures from their lives. Rossi, a former Des Moines Register journalist and IowaWatch board member, will tell about embarking on a new adventure in stand-up comedy. Renteria, who recently released his memoir, “We Heard It When We Were Young,” will share his adventures growing up in West Liberty. Richard, a documentary filmmaker, will share his harrowing tale of being trapped in the Andes of Argentina.
