(view on google maps)

At one time, daily letter-writing bound us together. Today, ubiquitous emails, texts, and social media messages challenge this time-honored tradition. This talk weaves together a historical look at letter-writing from the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt and historical figures like Abigail Adams and Jane Austen to the intimate, everyday shared experiences between sweethearts, friends, and family members. Is letter-writing a tradition lost? Or will a renewed interest take hold again? Presented by Celia Daniels.
