This I Believe
Believe * Write * Share
A community project based on This I Believe ®, sponsored by the Central Rappahannock Regional Library and Water Street Studio.
Join us for the Believe Write Share Community Gathering on Tuesday, August 26, 7:00 pm, at Headquarters, 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg.
Selected writers will be invited to share their essays at this community reading. Refreshments will be served.
The inspiration for our project originated with the This I Believe program, broadcast in the 1950’s on CBS Radio, continued on NPR from 2005-2009, and now standing on its own at thisibelieve.org. The site encourages a public dialogue, not to get everyone believing in the same way, but to develop an understanding and respect for other ways of thinking. Visit thisibelieve.org to read other essays by the famous and the not-at-all-famous, and for tips on how to write about a single instance or moment “when your belief was formed, tested, or changed.”
We also invite you to:
- Visit our partners, Water Street Studio, in Fredericksburg. They are a community of writers and artists with stories to tell.
- Read This I Believe: Life Lessons or This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women, available through the library. Or find more resources, including how to write essays, here.
