The Storytellers Project is a series of live storytelling nights where Des Moines Register journalists curate and host nights of true, first-person stories from neighbors and notables. The Register’s award-winning journalists help community members to draw out authentic, personal experiences and hone them into engaging dialogue. The nights send a message that everyone has a story worth telling, and that everyone CAN tell it. BE SURE TO CHECK WEBSITE FOR UPDATES DUE TO COVID-19!
