New Sociables Women’s Organization meeting — Apple Valley
March 6 @ 9:15 am
New Sociables Women’s Organization will meet 9:15 a.m. Monday, March 6, at Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church, 14401 Pilot Knob Road, Apple Valley. The church is located a half mile north of County Road 42.
Stephanie Glaros, author of “Humans in Minneapolis,” will be the guest speaker.
In 2010, Glaros decided she wanted to break down the social barriers between herself and people she encountered on the streets of downtown Minneapolis. She began to approach people on the street to hear their stories and take their photographs. With their permission, she told their stories on her blog, “Humans of Minneapolis.” The blog and a Facebook page started in 2013. A book was published in 2016.
Glaros is a graphic design instructor at Minneapolis Community and Technical College. She is working on community engagement projects for the city of Minneapolis, Meals on Wheels and the Minneapolis Parks Foundation and frequently leads talks and workshops that focus on communication in an attempt to encourage people to interact with each other.
