“Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” The First Amendment clearly states our rights for free speech. There is no more important time to remember this than in this election year. Join us for a Humanities Kansas presentation from Stephen Wolgast (pictured), the Knight Chair is Audience and Community Engagement for News at Kansas University. This is a free session; no sign ups required. Library U: Higher Learning for Adults is a program designed especially for adults. Anyone can come, but adults are the target audience. For this session, we’re excited to host a Humanities Kansas speaker. “Sharing the diversity of stories in settings across the state sheds light on where we’ve come from and starts conversations about who we are. The insights and ideas we generate as people in conversation are lighting the road ahead—for each of us and for the state we all proudly call home,” states the Humanities Kansas website, humanitieskansas.org. Visit their website for more information about their programs.
