I have a story in the March issue of DSM Magazine, which was unveiled this week!
The “Ladies who Learn” piece highlights two women’s “study groups” that have been around for decades.
I remember a kind of magical night when I was reporting the story, reading through old club correspondence with a mug of hot chocolate in hand. It was fascinating to peek into friendships that lasted a lifetime, long before I was alive. As a Des Moines transplant, each piece of history I learn about our city makes it feel a lot more like home!
Des Moinesians – are you members of the Lost Des Moines group on Facebook? It’s the go-to place for people swapping stories and posting historical photos.
I love that we live in a historic house and feel lucky that our neighbor is curator of the State Historical Society of Iowa. I know it’s supposed to warm up a bit this weekend, but if you’re feeling Cabin Fever, it’s a great place to explore. We went with a bunch of my nieces and nephews when they were in town a few weeks go and everyone loved the Civil War and RAGBRAI exhibits. (It’s also FREE!)
