Adding a panel!
Our Archivist Mark Holland just discovered that his great uncle, Lester Rice, is one of the letter writers! Needless to say, he is blown away by this discovery.
Lester's story is not told in the book, so I'm very excited to create a panel about him and his family. Mark has some photos at home, so I will be able to tell this story visually. (That's important when creating an exhibit!)
I just went up to the Keller Gallery to see where I could squeeze in one more panel! I found a spot for it. My new panels are much larger than what I used to make, which means they take up a lot more room. I'm glad I was able to add a panel about Lester, especially with our personal connection on staff!
Remember! A Secret Gift opens on FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15 with a FREE reception from 6:00 to 7:30.
Or, you can get a sneak peek the night before at our Soup at Six event on THURSDAY NOVEMBER 14. Our special guest is Eric Benjamin, composer of the Canton Symphony Orchestra's piece based on A Secret Gift. Soup at Six includes a soup dinner, the program, and a special preview of the Keller Gallery exhibit! Cost is $15 per person and pre-paid reservations are required. It's filling up fast, so if you're interested, call 330-455-7043 to sign up!
