“Southeast Georgia on Our Minds”
The ‘Southeast Georgia on Our Minds,” series continues Tuesday, Nov. 13, with ‘Word Portraits of Southeast Georgia: Memories of Family and Home,” presented by Theresa Welford, associate professor of writing. Her talk takes place 7-9 p.m. at Jenkins County Memorial Library, 223 Daniel Street in Millen.
Welford, a poet and nonfiction writer, will give a reading and pointers on writing a ‘snapshot essay.” She will be assisted by a former student, Sylvia Kline, who will offer reminiscences of her youth and of several prominent leaders in Statesboro’s African-American community.
The ‘Southeast Georgia on Our Minds” series is sponsored by the Georgia Humanities Council and facilitated by Georgia Southern University in partnership with Screven-Jenkins Regional Library System. It is free of charge and open to the general public, with refreshments provided by the Friends of the libraries involved.
