Roses of the Prairie

LaWayne Leno

Join us for a historical lecture by award winning local author LaWayne Leno as he discusses and reads excerpts from his latest work, Roses of the Prairie: The Artistry of Belle Mehus, Alma Mehus Studness, and Anne Marit Studness Bergstrom. The presentation will follow pianists Belle and Alma Mehus from their pioneer childhood on the Dakota Prairie through their lifelong careers as piano performers and teachers. Mr. Leno’s readings and discussion of these three amazing women promise to be a kaleidoscopic journey through the tumultuous but musically rich 20th century.
