IMG_20160423_143830266New board member, Ariel Keeton, has just completed work on a new exhibit that will be on display this summer. You are invited to the exhibit’s grand opening on Saturday, June 25 from 6-8PM. Ariel says, “Come join us as we journey through the ages of history, with the aid of literature. Explore how entertainment for generations was contained between the pages of books and newspapers. Relive or understand the excitement and tragedy of historical events as presented in written word. Most of all, come to enjoy the artifacts being brought back to life with History Through Literature.”
