Soul of a People: Voices from the Writers' Project - Library Outreach Programs

Soul of a People: Voices from the Writers Project-Library Outreach Programs will assist libraries in presenting public humanities programs that explore the works of the Works Progress Administration Writers Project, such as the American Guide series of state and regional travel and culture guides, regional cultural studies, oral history, films and photographs, and the works of important authors such as Zora Neale Hurston and Saul Bellow, who got their start in the Writers Project. Libraries will present five programs representing the broad scope of the Writers Project and encourage scholar-led discussion of major project themes. Library programs will take place in Spring 2009 to complement the national broadcast of a major Spark Media television documentary, "Soul of a People: Voices from the Writers Project."
