Writers of Oakland 
Wednesday, January 24
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Discover the storytellers, novelists, poets, and journalists who brought words to life and entered Oakland’s gates through death. In our first Young Historians program of 2018, we’ll unleash our inner poets and create an Oakland daily. We’ll meet a few of Oakland’s word-weavers along the way, including novelist Margaret Mitchell, diarists Carrie Berry and Samuel Pearce Evans, poet Lollie Belle Moore Wylie, and Pulitzer-Prize winning journalists Julia and Julian Harris.
Age: Recommended for ages 8-14.
