Southwest Connector launches 'Let's Connect,' a new community speaker series

The in-person events will showcase great local people in Minneapolis doing great things.


Minneapolis is filled with great local people doing great things in the world. The Southwest Connector will showcase them with "Let's Connect," a new community speakers series.

Every month, the Southwest Connector will feature an interesting local resident to talk about their work and life in Minneapolis. Southwest Connector owner/editor Tesha M. Christensen and Southwest Connector columnist Eric Ortiz will moderate the conversation and take questions from the audience.

"Let's Connect" will take place on the first Friday of every month, from 9-10 a.m., at Everett & Charlie, an art gallery in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis.

The goal of "Let's Connect" is to celebrate great locals, support their work, and build community.

The "Let's Connect" speaker series is free and open to the public. All are welcome to join us. Food and drinks will be provided.

Our first "Let's Connect" event is with children's book author Marissa Bader, a resident of Linden Hills. Marissa will talk about her two children's books (Stella's Brave Voice, The Only Me), her love for writing, her work as a writer/editor at Lucie's List, parenting three daughters, family life in Minneapolis, and her neighborhood. Marissa has a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy and weaves that into her work.

Let's Connect With Marissa Bader is on Friday, Dec. 1, at 9 a.m. at Everett & Charlie (2720 West 43rd Street #103, Minneapolis, MN 55410). Please RSVP and join us.

Let us know if you are interested in being a sponsor or speaker for Let's Connect.
