‘Rooted’ again features locals sharing their love of … local

Hate to say the Buzz is going to miss the second annual “Rooted” storytelling event, but YOU shouldn’t.

Eileen Garvin tells us the Nov. 2 event is all about our friends and neighbors sharing — in 5 minutes or less — “captivating original stories of their unique experiences of living in the Columbia River Gorge.”

Sponsored and organized by Livable Hood River, “Rooted: Gorge stories of community, creativity and innovation” includes presentations by songwriter Matt Mesa, who will present an ode to Mount Hood; wild land firefighter Will Smith recounting the drama of the Eagle Creek Fire; and National Geographic writer Michelle Nihaus exploring the importance of the “human grid” in sustainable living.

The fun kicks off at the Columbia Gorge Center for the Arts with a no-host bar at 6:30 p.m. and music from Violet Montenegro. Storytellers take the stage from 7 to 9 p.m. with Doug Stepina, lead singer of the Antonyms, as emcee.

Sponsored by Insitu, this event is free and open to the public.
