Registration open for Story launch, Facebook page up
Registration is now open for the April 12 launch of Story in the Public Square, a partnership of Salve Regina University's Pell Center and The Providence Journal.
The day-long event in Newport, R.I., will feature accomplished storytellers, including journalists, a novelist and filmmakers; a screening of the Providence Journal's acclaimed documentary "Coming Home," about veterans returning to southeastern New England after tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan; keynote remarks from former Sen. Gary Hart; and the presentation of the first Pell Center Prize for Story in the Public Square.
Pre-registration is required, as space is limited. The event is free for Salve students, faculty and staff, and others will be charged $20, which includes the entire day's programming and lunch. Details and registration through the Story Day link.
