It’s Thursday:Journals, journals, journals…

…on the brain this week. First, in my continued search for Civil War journals/letters written by women, I happened upon this gem. Women’s Letters: America from the Revolutionary War to the present offers cultural insight into a population rarely mentioned in history classes when I was a girl. Taken as a whole, the shared correspondences read very much like a journal. Second, it looks like we will be presenting the Learning Journeys program this June at the Chautauqua sponsored by the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs in the Lewes Historical Complex. That triggered a renewed search for Commonplace Books, the 17th-19th c. version of our learning journal, for our Delaware Library Catalog. Third, be on the lookout for an amazing journaling adventure with our partners, the Delaware Division of Arts next month. Intriguing, right? And last, I have a stack of 11 books waiting to be returned the library…but they need to be entered into my GoodReads journal first! Told you…journals on the brain.
