Lived in Baltimore my entire life, I had never been to the Enoch Pratt Library. Wonderful exihibit.
Great class! The class was more informative than the course I took at the community college. The instructor did a wonderful job of explaining the session. Kate was very helpful too...I am looking forward to Excel part 2.
Mr. Chamberlin gave moving readings of his true-to-life short pieces, peppered with humor and wit.
His writing is evocative of a past steeped in the mysteries and revelations of ordinary life.
He has some extraordinary experiences to relate, though, and I look forward to reading more of his work.
Shayleen, Kim & Marc provided their usual extra quality environment and assistance and the guests were of the type that gives confidence and assurance that I shall keep coming to future events. Tim ward
This was a very informative course. I learned more than I expected. I am grateful for all of the information that was provided.
The workshop was very well presented, clear and concise. I found it very helpful. I came in with little knowledge and no experience of crowdfunding and now I feel that I know what to do and how to go about it. It was very clear that preparation and follow through are critical. I will follow up with Ms Hypki to learn more.
Great presentation & invaluable information.
Informative discussion. This was my first event in the series. Though not as focused on a general discussion of race in America, the details of the memoir promise insights through personal experience.
While it was great to see Charles Blow in person, and the overall intention on behalf of the library is well-taken, the general discussion fell below my expectations and I was kind of disappointed. It really focused on Blow's memoir more than it did a discussion of race. Blow was even fielded a couple questions on his thoughts about race in this country today, and he deflected them. He really wanted to keep the focus on his memoir, which is fine, but the conversation didn't really weave into a really good discussion of race in my opinion. This contradicted the opening intro the library gave, which was kind of misleading in a way. No fault of anyone's, just thought the actual conversation was different than advertised.
I learned a lot about the databases that the Pratt Library had on it's website to help people find jobs especially in their career field. I still have more that I want to put on my resume. I scheduled an appointment at the Jobs & Career Information Center for assistance with revising my resume. I'm also reading this book What Color is Your Parachute by Richard N. Bolles that was recommended by the lady that directed the Resume Workshop and it's an amazing book so far.
