Arts and Humanities Month

October is not only National Information Literacy Awareness Month, but it’s also National Arts and Humanities Month. Kansas Humanities has really been the only agency I’ve seen doing much to celebrate, but I appreciate their efforts.

This week they are shouting out SAVE A STORY. Stories are important things. They are how people learn. They are how people connect. They are how people make sense of the world.  As the late Tom Clancy wrote in Debt of Honor: “If you don’t write it down, it never happened.” So write it down:

  1. Hi Sarah, the save a story link results in an error message. Can you double check the link? It looks interesting!

    1. Sorry. It worked when I linked, but apparently the constant contact only leave it up so long and they only add it to the Kansas website afterwards. I changed it and it should work now. Thanks for letting me know, Nanc.
