March 30

Yates County Voices

Women’s History Month: Yates County Voices, Yesterday and Today will be held from 10 a.m. to noon March 30 at Penn Yan Public Library, 214 Main St., Penn Yan. Celebrate the women who helped build our community and who keep it flourishing. A selection from the oral histories recorded by the local American Association of University Women (AAUW) chapter highlights themes that contemporary women will pick up on and embellish — from those carrying on philanthropist Milly Bloomquist’s legacy of giving, to those who have served in the armed forces like World War II veteran Carlotta Crosier, and more. Please help us honor the contributions of the women of Yates County of yesterday, today — and tomorrow. Free and open to all; refreshments will be served. 315-536-6114

Graphic Memoirs

Titles such as Fun Home by Alison Bechdel, the March trilogy by John Lewis, and Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi have proven the power of weaving words and pictures to tell life stories. In honor of Will Eisner Week, we invite you to learn about the popular and ever-growing medium of graphic memoir—then make one yourself! No literary or artistic skill required—just come with an open mind and the will to try. All supplies will be provided; to sign up, please call 315-536-6114 or visit 315-536-6114
