On Saturday, June 20 at 10 a.m., The Virgin Valley Heritage Museum will present a class on writing for the child’s ear. Geraldine Zarate, a local historian, author and artist, will provide direction on how to write histories for children and grandchildren.

Many of the early settlers of the Virgin Valley recorded their joys and challenges of life for future generations.  Many of those histories are contained in the Museum’s reference library, The Verde and Nora Reference Library.  More contemporary histories are also in the library.

The class will be in the art classroom next to the Museum.  Admission is free.
