For the third year, the Many Faces – Many Stories collaboration returns to build community through storytelling. After exploring the history of the many groups of people who have called the White Bear Lake area home during the previous academic year, this year’s events will invite people to learn more about the diverse experiences of their neighbors both near and far through book discussions, community workshops, lectures, tours, theater performances, art exhibits and more. Through the broad array of happenings, community members are invited to explore their role in society, learn how to tell their own story, and explore cultures, experiences and religions different from their own.
For example, award-winning graphic artist Thi Bui will present her illustrated memoir, “The Best We Could Do,” at two public presentations that include a Q&A and book signings.
