Secretly Y’all was founded in 2009 by Lauren Russo, Rachel Vogus and Leslie Channel. They put up storytelling shows monthly at Random Row Books on Main Street. Leslie has since gone to California and Secretly Y’all has gone to Richmond where it is still thrives.
Charlottesville is a great community because of the effort put in by a lot of hardworking people to build groups, organizations and events. These take a lot of time to put together, and a lot of work to run, but they make this town very special. Thank you Lauren, Rachel, and Leslie, for contributing so much.
