Are you ready to hunt for writing ideas off the beaten path? Then join this action-packed week of exploring with local author Delia Ray as she leads us on a tour of her favorite downtown historical landmarks. One day we’ll be opening “discovery trunks” at the Old Capitol Museum to get a rare peek at artifacts and treasures from the past. Another day we’ll head to Oakland Cemetery to see the legendary Black Angel monument and visit other grave sites guaranteed to stir the imagination and start the stories flowing. Come prepared for these and other time-travel adventures . . . and plenty of writing along the way!
