Wed18Jan Bringing History Home: Educational Outreach Using Local Government Records
Endeavour Room, Student Union; 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB), with funding by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and support from Special Collections and Archives, Wright State University, is proud to sponsor a unique, educational, hands-on workshop opportunity. The Greene County Records Center and Archives, winner of the 2016 OHRAB Achievement Award and the 2016 NAGARA Program Excellence Award, is bringing its outreach initiative to you and giving you the tools to develop such a program in your archives and records center!

In 2015, the Greene County Records Center and Archives set about creating a program, using their archival records, to engage students and educators alike as to what the archives were and how the primary sources that they held, such as freedom papers, maps, deeds, tax records and more, could enrich students’ educational experiences, teach research concepts, and bring the state and national issues that they were studying home on a local level.

The workshop will encompass both presentation and hands-on learning. Lunch will be provided at no charge.

Participants attending this workshop will:

  • Gain an understanding of how to develop an educational outreach program, market it and reap the benefits
  • Actually participate in the 4th, 6th, and 8th grade programs developed by the Greene County Records Center & Archives
  • Take away an educational outreach packet of materials developed by the Greene County Records Center & Archives.

Free parking is available in Visitor Lot 2, in front of Student Union.

A special behind the scenes tour of Special Collections and Archives, Wright State University Libraries, will follow the workshop for those interested.

REGISTRATION FOR THIS WORKSHOP HAS NOW CLOSED.

Thu19Jan Blackass by A. Igoni Barrett (Book Club)
Winans, 3510 Pentagon Blvd, Beavercreek; 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The Friends of the Wright State University Libraries are pleased to announce selections for the 2016-17 Unwin(e)d Book Club. Join us at 5:30 p.m. at Winans in Beavercreek on Pentagon Blvd, January 19, to discuss Blackass by A. Igoni Barrett. Snacks will be provided and treat yourself to wine, coffee or chocolate as we discuss debut novels by lesser-known authors. No subject is off the table. This is not your mother's book club.

With a premise loosely inspired by Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis, A. Igoni Barrett's Blackass is a fierce comic satire that touches on everything from race to social media while at the same time questioning the values society places on us simply by virtue of the way we look. As he did in Love Is Power, or Something Like That, Barrett brilliantly depicts life in contemporary Nigeria and details the double-dealing and code-switching that are implicit in everyday business. In Blackass, Furo Wariboko, a young Nigerian, awakes the morning before a job interview to find that he's been transformed into a white man. In this condition he plunges into the bustle of Lagos to make his fortune. With his red hair, green eyes, and pale skin, it seems he's been completely changed. Well, almost… Furo's search for an identity--one deeper than skin-- leads to the final unraveling of his own carefully constructed story.

Join us for future Unwin(e)d Book Club discussion on The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney (March 9).

Book club is free and open to the public. The book is available to purchase at the Barnes and Noble University bookstore on our main campus (20% discount with your Wright1 or Friends of the Libraries card!).

Thu09Mar The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney (Book Club)
Winans, 3510 Pentagon Blvd, Beavercreek; 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The Friends of the Wright State University Libraries are pleased to announce selections for the 2016-17 Unwin(e)d Book Club. Join us at 5:30 p.m. at Winans in Beavercreek on Pentagon Blvd, September 8, to discuss The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney. Snacks will be provided and treat yourself to wine, coffee or chocolate as we discuss debut novels by lesser-known authors. No subject is off the table. This is not your mother's book club.

The Nest is a story about the power of family, the possibilities of friendship, the ways we depend upon one another and the ways we let one another down. In this tender, entertaining, and deftly written debut, Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney brings a remarkable cast of characters to life to illuminate what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of time, and the fraught yet unbreakable ties we share with those we love.

Book club is free and open to the public. The book is available to purchase at the Barnes and Noble University bookstore on our main campus (20% discount with your Wright1 or Friends of the Libraries card!).
