Keynote speaker Anita Diamant, author of "The Last Days of Dogtown" and "The Red Tent", will address how non-historians can incorpate local history to tell history from the point of view of "minor" characters.
Sessions include writing history for children, writing exhibit text, creative publishing options for local history, organizing reading and discussion groups, writing for local anniversaries, writing local history for the web, utilizing your organization's primary sources to develop school programs, and the interplay of fact and invention in public history.
The conference will be held at the Higgins University Center, Clark University, Worcester, MA.
