Due to the extensive time required to make entries,  we are extending opportunities for entries to the following 2 dates below during our regular Independent Scholars' Evenings.

"Life on the Mississippi - the New Millennium" is a manuscript maintained by the Institute.  The manuscript records life along the Mississippi in  various voices and authorship in long-hand and archival ink.

The manuscript is kept safely under lock and key between entries, bringing it out periodically for entries as well as readings.

Please come in to make entries in the manuscript as well as review the recent entries made.

Obviously, when copies of  the manuscript are sold proceeds will be distributed

to contributors on a pro-rated basis.

7.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m.
