May 15, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Blue Box: Five Lives in Letters introduces Margaret Haskins, the four times great grandmother of Sallie Bingham. This story begins with Haskin’s capture by the Shawnee Indians in 1778 and recounts her years of captivity in their camp, ending with a fictional reconstruction of her life after she returned to Virginia. Bingham describes how she found the box and the effect that her childhood in Kentucky had on her writing.
