“Story Hour” events bring laughs in the City of Literature

The City of Literature’s first annual “Story Hour” events were held on Saturday, March 31; and Friday, April 1, and both offered plenty of laughs.

The first event, “Made in Iowa,” was held at the Iowa City Brewlab and featured Iowa Nice Guy Scott Siepker. The star of the popular series of “Iowa Nice” videos shared his thoughts about the amazing things happening in Iowa, and encouraged attendees to be proud of their state, while making them laugh throughout.

The second event, “What’s So Funny?” was held at Brown Deer Golf Club in Coralville. Hosted by Siepker, the event featured local storytellers sharing humorous stories about work and the workplace. Presenters included Megan Gogerty, a local actress and comedian; Robyn Hepker, a designer with Benson & Hepker; and Dave Parsons, CFO of Tallgrass Business Solutions.

In addition, they were joined by Brittany Borghi, a graduate student in the nonfiction writing program at the University of Iowa. Borghi was unable to appear in person, so a video of her presentation was shown. Many in attendance asked us to share Borghi’s video so they could share it in turn.

Here is Borghi’s “Letter to Iowa City.”
