One-day Seminar: Women, Tragedies, Oral History, and Eastern European Research Have What in Common?

Speaker: Lisa Alzo, MFA

On Saturday, 21 March 2015, I spent the day at the Indiana Historical Society to hear Lisa Alzo speak about the following topics: Women, Tragedies, Oral History, and Eastern European Research. I have heard her speak before, which is why I was so eager to attend this 1-day seminar!

And what a day it was! Ms. Alzo has a way of presenting her topics such that you don’t even realize an hour has passed, the subject material is so engrossing. There were a number of people at the seminar of Eastern European descent. As far as I know at this point, I have no ties to Eastern Europe. However, I wanted to learn more about this region just to be better educated. Ms. Alzo has authored a book about her maternal ancestors, Three Slovak Women, among several other books. I’m anxious to read more about her history!

I must say the folks at the Indiana Historical Society are truly gracious, in the seminar, when I wandered around on breaks, in the gift shop, and at the front desk. Really a very nice place to visit and on such a lovely day! Spring dropped by in central Indiana that day for a moment; it was nice to enjoy the sun and 60s!

I posted a couple pics on my Twitter feed from IHS, a fun quote in the Lily Center and a book I picked up authored by James H. Madison and Lee Ann Sandweiss.

Great day! I urge you, if you ever have the opportunity to hear Ms. Alzo speak, please do so! You most certainly will not be disappointed.
