Heirlooms: Creative Life Writing
This workshop-style presentation provides a space for participants to identify important life memories and record them onto paper through fun, hands-on activities.

Finding the Sublime in the Prairie: Pastoral Literature and Midwestern Regionalism in Gilead
Ball adapts her conference paper on Marilynne Robinson's Gilead; she explores the unique beauty found on the prairie and in small prairie towns. This presentation could be adapted to a discussion format as well, and expand beyond this particular novel.
