Virtual Awards Ceremony & Journeys Readings

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the temporary closure of the Minnesota History Center, our annual Journeys event will be virtual this year. We'll be launching on June 2 with a video awards ceremony, then releasing videos of Journeys authors reading their original pieces every Tuesday in June. Stay tuned for how you can participate!
