Join us as we celebrate the interplay between Music & Literature. The event begins with short readings by featured authors and song writers who all have literary ties to music. A brief panel discussion will be moderated by Kristina Gaddy, an award-winning writer who believes in the power of narrative nonfiction to bring stories from the past to life in order to inform the world we live in today. In 2018, Kristina received a Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Ruby's Artist Award for Well of Souls, a literary exploration of the little known history of the banjo in the Americas, its role as a a spiritual device in the hands of enslaved Africans, and the instrument's legacy in today’s culture and society.
The audience will then engage in a workshop style songwriting exploration led by Talia, a singer/songwriter. Participants will have the opportunity to write their own songs, all abilities welcome. Absolutely no experience necessary in order to participate, young adults and families welcome.
The event will conclude with music by panelists.
