Thirsty Tome: Where We Come From: Place, Memory, and Hidden History
“Where We Come From” Panelist Discussion, 5:00-6:30 pm, November 12, 2021
Places have power—to shape us, to create identity, to give shelter—but they also carry with them their own histories and stories, often untold. Please join National Book Award longlisted author and UNCW alum Jason Mott, Creative Writing Professor KaToya Fleming, and Public History Professor Kenneth Shefsiek as we touch on themes of what makes a home, what narratives are hidden within seemingly familiar places, and what we carry with us from “where we come from.”
