Sallie Bingham will present the program, "Weaving The Past Into The Present: Family Documents Through The Fiction Writer's Perspective", at the Thomas D. Clark History Center, Brown-Forman Room, Frankfort, KY on Friday, Nov. 13 at 1p.m.
Ms. Bingham will talk about her experience in discovering letters, diaries and writings left by her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, which she turned into the book, The Blue Box: Three Lives in Letters. These women left a strong tradition of writing which carries on today with Sallie, who has written extensively, and to another generation with Sallie's niece, Emily.
The program will appeal to writers, historians and genealogists who share the interest of bringing to past to the present and the discoveries made in doing so.
Ms. Bingham will sign copies of her book, which will available for sale at the event. She will also be at the Kentucky Book Fair on Nov. 14.
The program is presented by the Kentucky Book Fair and the Clark History Center.
Michael Crisp will attend the 2015 Kentucky Book Fair and sign copies of his latest title, Blue Shirts.
