In Their Own Words: Manuscripts, Letters, and Other Primary Sources about Literary Lives

Authors, poets, and playwrights are known for their writing, but not all of them leave behind a handy autobiography or memoir. However, you can still read their own reflections on their lives and times. Come to this workshop to find out how you can find published collections of journals, diaries, and letters, and collections of manuscripts and other personal papers at Ball State University Libraries and elsewhere.
