On Saturday, June 5 at 6:15 p.m., New Ulm Public Library will host Korenne’s workshop, titled “Making Local History Come Alive through Character Writing.” Korenne will teach attendees how to create engaging and lifelike characters in their family or local history writing. Korenne writes intimately introspective songs and prose about the pathways of fringe figures in history. What binds these disparate life journeys is a profound and poetic sensitivity for the human condition: “My work is about cultivating empathy and opening minds and hearts,” Korenne says. The program will be presented virtually through Zoom, so registration is encouraged to attend. This free public program is made possible by a grant provided by the Traverse des Sioux Library Cooperative and funded with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
