In any exciting story, adventure or fairy tale, there is almost always a castle… which always holds at least one, if not many secrets waiting to be discovered. So, it is not surprising that on April 14th, TEDxOmaha Adventures is in a castle, where the story does not involve medieval jousting knights but the Joslyns. Our host for the day will be Kelli Bello, Communications Coordinator of the Joslyn Castle Trust. Together we will explore some of the treasures that are hidden in plain sight in the heart of Omaha, and the family who not only lived in the castle but who left their legacy to the city.
