Warren County Memorial Library Celebrates Women’s History Month

Warren County Memorial Library celebrates Women’s History Month through literacy, culture, and the arts. The highlight will be three special programs featuring scholars offering a unique look into women’s history. In addition to these programs, the library will have celebratory book displays, bookmarks, reading lists, and activities.

The first of the three featured programs will be a Quilt Exhibit and Mini-Workshop on March 6, 2020 from 9:30 am until 3:30 pm. Local quilter Joanna Liguz of Material Blessings will host this exhibit and workshop. Stop by to see several beautiful examples of her work and learn the basics of quilting by watching as she quilts an example quilt square.

The second featured program will be Women of Dance on March 16, 2020 from 12:00 pm until 1:00 pm.

Vernita “Nana Vee” Terry presents this look into the history and creative influences of several women of color who became leading figures in the world of dance.

The third and final featured program will be The Crusade Against Illiteracy in the United States: The Life and Times of Cora Wilson Stewart on March 24, 2020 from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm. Long before it became popular to decry the problem of adult illiteracy, Cora Wilson Stewart was leading public crusades to solve this problem. In this program, Road Scholar Willie Nelms will describe Stewart’s life, her role as a woman, and the literacy movement. This project is made possible by funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit & affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views expressed by this program do not necessarily represent those of the North Carolina Humanities Council.
