Soul of a People: Voices from the Writers' Project - Library Outreach Programs

"Soul of a People: Voices from the Writers' Project" will offer The University of Texas-Pan American Library the chance to develop a series of five public programs with scholar led discussion that will outreach to students, faculty, staff, and the general public, involving them in some creative thinking about the now virtually forgotten story of the largest cultural experience in U.S. history - the Federal Writers' Project (FWP) of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) that was administered during the Depression years from 1935-1942.
