Inquiring Minds in the Library of Congress
My thanks to Erin Allen and the staff at the Library of Congress for featuring this Q&A about the Federal Writers’ Project and the event at the Library showcasing the WPA writers’ legacy in oral history with the 75th anniversary of the publication of These Are Our Lives, which first appeared in May 1939.
The event features Ann Banks, author of First-Person America (now available on Kindle), Virginia Millington from StoryCorps, and actors John Stange and Eternanda Fudge, courtesy of DC’s Theatre Lab, evoking the WPA life histories from These Are Our Lives. Please read and let us know what you think. And watch for the webcast of the May 15 event at the Library of Congress, coming soon. Details here.
