Washburn Library, 5244 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55419
We will introduce our new book, Scholars without Walls: The History of the Minnesota Independent Scholars' Forum. This book, due out in October 2018, tells how a group of unemployed academics became a current-day organization with monthly meetings, study groups, a regular newsletter, and fiscal agency assistance. In addition to a history of the organization, this new book includes examples of writing by independent scholars—on subjects from health insurance to history.
Authors Lucy Brusic, Evelyn Klein and Mike Woolsey will introduce the book. We will talk about what inspired us to write the book and what we hope to accomplish by publishing it. Copies of the book will be available for sale.
Lucy Brusic is a writer and editor; Evelyn Klein is a writer and editor; Mike Woolsey is an independent scholar and grant writer.
