Burke Library is pleased to introduce Apple & Quill, a new creative arts series focusing on creative writing, music, and the visual arts. With support from Hamilton’s Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi), this series will be recorded and archived for future teaching and research opportunities. This fall, the series will feature students and faculty from Hamilton’s own creative writing community. “We think the library is the perfect venue for literary and artistic events, especially with the recent renovations to the library’s space,” says Reference and Outreach Librarian, Kristin Strohmeyer. The series will take place in the atrium of the library, which has been reconfigured to better accommodate public gatherings. Each event will feature two writers from Hamilton College’s writing community, along with open mic slots for audience members who wish to share their work. All events will start at 7:00 p.m.
