Living History: Writing the Story of 2020

Taking the lead of Curt Brown who wrote the history of three events that devastated Minnesota in 1918, we will address questions like: In this year, what have you lost? What have you learned? How have your values and beliefs shifted, challenged and/or sustained you? We will write both during the workshop sessions and in between times, share what we’ve written with each other, and possibly compile some of our work.
