It is often said that we are a nation of immigrants. Family gatherings are a time to share and recount memories of travels, hardships, hope, and persistence. These are some of the themes that author Isabel Wilkerson takes up in her book, The Warmth of Other Suns, which has inspired this writing workshop conducted by University of Notre Dame Professors Stuart Greene and Maria McKenna. Participants will have an opportunity to write and share their stories with one another. Free to the public. Reservations requested. The I Am From Workshop is a program of The Great Migration, a component of the Africana World's year-long celebration and study of the African Diaspora. Free and open to the public. Registration requested.
