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 and explores the unique beauty found on the prairie and in small prairie towns. The presentation can also be adapted to a discussion format and expand beyond this particular novel.
