Virtual Event: Every Color Has a Story, History on the Palette

Thursday July 8 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Do you know the history of the colors in your world? All the tints, hues, dyes, and shades of the colors around you can be traced back to a specific point in history – and the stories they tell are amazing! Which came first – the fruit orange or the color orange? Was Lincoln Green named after Mary Lincoln? This Illustrated Lecture will share with you the powerful – and colorful! – history of color. Laura Keyes will be delighting audiences with her colorful presentation on Zoom. Click here to register.

Laura Keyes graduated from UW-Madison with a Master’s Degree in Library Studies, and has been presenting on historic topics for over ten years. She enjoys researching literary symbolism, and is contracted to write a book on that subject. In her non-existent spare time, Laura is a wonderful baker and accomplished vocalist. Laura is currently a Library Director in Central Illinois.

For more information or help with registration, please contact Janet Clark at 815-825-2525.
