Take some time out from your busy week to go on a virtual tour of three works from the Museum's vast collections. For this thirty-minute tour, we will explore visual representations of writers and consider what we can learn about them through the images.
This program will take place on Zoom and is designed to be interactive. There will be opportunities for conversation and questions. Video is highly encouraged.
You must have a Zoom account to register for this program. Don't have Zoom? Sign up for free here.
