The Fredericksburg area is a community of Makers, people collaborating and creating together, following their passions, and for just plain fun!
On the afternoon of September 14, 2013, the Central Rappahannock Regional Library will be celebrating this creative spirit at Rappahannock Reads: MADE BY HAND
We are excited to have Mark Frauenfelder, the author of the book, Made By Hand: My Adventures in the world of Do-It-Yourself (also read our review). Mr. Frauenfelder is editor-in-chief of MAKE magazine and co-editor of the collaborative weblog Boing Boing. Join us at 2pm for a talk and book-signing, followed at 3pm by the FESTIVAL OF COMMUNITY MAKERS. We are inviting community groups to showcase their creativity, either with demonstrations or hands-on activities throughout the England Run Branch Library that afternoon. We would love for your group to participate! And hopefully folks will also be thrilled to consider joining some of the groups that share their passions! Feel free to share your schedule of upcoming events, meetings, and workshops, or anything else you would like to spread the word about.
Mark Frauenfelder's talk is at 2pm. The Festival of Community Makers is from 3-5pm.
