Special Event

An Evening with Dessa

Jun. 13, 2019 AT 5:30 PM

A special performance to benefit our Library


Minneapolis’ own singer, poet, and songwriting powerhouse Dessa will join Library supporters like you at a special fundraising event.

Enjoy an indoor and outdoor experience (weather permitting) at the private residence of Tom and Mary Racciatti—a beautiful home with panoramic views of downtown Minneapolis, the Guthrie Theater, and the Stone Arch Bridge. The evening will include appetizers, cocktails, and an intimate performance by Dessa. This special event benefits Hennepin County Library programs like MnSpin, the Library’s new streaming service featuring Minnesota artists.

Tickets: $150 and $250 VIP (includes a signed copy of Dessa’s critically-acclaimed 2018 memoir My Own Devices and special recognition in the event program). Call 612-543-8104 or buy online below.

ABOUT DESSA: Singer, rapper, and songwriter Dessa has made a career of bucking genres and defying expectations. She’s co-composed for a 100-voice choir; contributed a track to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s The Hamilton Mixtape; and in 2017, she assembled a team of neuroscientists to design an experimental protocol to try to fall out of love.
