Sparks for Creative Expression in the Library’s Collections

Saturday, October 21, 2017 | 9:30-12:30 am

Place: Conference Rooms

Cost: $30 ($25 for Semper Virginia Society members and students)

Registration required.


Want to add mystery, suspense, or wonder to your October? Find sparks for spellbinding stories, poems, films, or other creative arts by examining artifacts and documents related to the Teetotalers & Moonshiners exhibition, coroner’s reports detailing acts of murder and mayhem, freedom suits that reveal tenacious fights for justice decades before the Civil War, and more. In this workshop led by poet-librarian Wendy DeGroat, you’ll see original documents up close, learn how to find and access digitized records, discuss guidelines for ethical use of sources, and kindle your imagination—all in the company of creatives like you. Both emerging and experienced writers and artists welcome. Minimum age is 16. For more information, contact
catherine.wyatt@lva.virginia.gov or 804.692.3999.
