Winnipeg talk explores history of writing

April 1, 2017 by  

In today’s digital world, pens, pencils and other instruments can seem primitive to some, but during an upcoming Winnipeg talk, the community will have a chance to learn more about the development of these and other writing tools.

Ines Bonacossa will be facilitating the session, which will cover the history of writing and the different tools that have been used through the ages in the creation of some of the world’s best known literature. The history of everything from ink to writing desks, papyrus, paper, wax and seals and more will be covered, and light refreshments will be served during the discussion.

The talk has been planned for the Dalnavert Museum, which is a place that recreates the late Victorian era. The admission price for the event will be $15.00 each, and free parking is available. The organizers of a talk like this can use the services of a printer to provide them with flyers and other marketing materials to promote it to local residents.

From Hand to Paper: Writing Before Computers has been added to the agenda for Sunday, April 9th at 1:30 pm in the museum, which is located at 61 Carelton Street. Additional information about the function can be found by visiting its website, which also contains more information about the institution and the different activities and other events it will host throughout the year.
