As we launch the newest edition of our literary journal, we will gather to hear our Baltimore area authors share their published pieces and engage in an interactive discussion on the meaning of freedom and how this theme was interpreted in our latest publication.

Buffalo in the Book: The Beauty of Letter Writing

  • Enoch Pratt Free Library, SE Anchor Branch (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Featuring Ann Quinn, Gina Strauss, and Maria Goodson

Join us as we explore letter writing as its own literary art form. When writing a letter, the author never expects to see the piece of writing again. Yet, so many letters throughout history have gained literary significance. In this series, we look to explore this impermanent written form. Attendees will have the opportunity to create their own stationary and letters.

This event takes place at the Enoch-Pratt Public Library Southeast Anchor Branch.
