Write Your Own Hamilton: Finding Your Stories in Libraries

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Whether Hamilton or Lumberjanes, many stories have research behind them. Libraries and archives offer unique and amazing resources that can add telling details, dramatic tension, or new ideas to your narratives.  Level up your library use (locally and virtually), find hidden gems to add to a story, and harness the power of social media to connect with libraries and archives. We want to talk with creators, educators, and librarians and share ideas about researching stories.
