We had an amazing time with Richard Blanco on July 9th! He gave a powerful and moving two-part program, leaving us feeling inspired for many days to come. Thank you Richard Blanco for visiting our Library, and island! We only hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Richard Blanco’s first event of the day was a Question and Answer Session for writers
A lively conversation ensued
Richard Blanco telling the story of his journey to writing and the White House with stirring insight, and plenty of humor too!
