RIVERTON — Storyteller Glenn Rawson will share pioneer stories of courage and faith despite incredible odds during his keynote address Saturday, May 19, at 9 a.m. at the Riverton FamilySearch Library's Saturday Seminar. He will also share what some of these inspired and inspiring people accomplished and what we can learn from them.

After the keynote presentation, there will be two blocks of four classes.
