Local artist, VET, welcomes you to participate in a series of quilting workshops, entitled Freedom Quilt Codes, to be held throughout the city of Dallas. Come create quilting blocks from fabric using traditional symbols and techniques, as you learn the hidden codes used by slaves and abolitionists.

African American slaves used many disguises, signals and codes to navigate the Underground Road to freedom. Quilts with patterns of secret codes, words, signs were stitched into fabric squares to pass hidden messages to and from slaves on their journey. Slaves who were escaping and those who were helping them in this very dangerous flight, were subject to fines, imprisonment and/or physical punishment if caught. Very few quilts survived over the years due to harsh lye soap and grueling wear and tear of the outdoor elements. Patterns and designs from modern day quilters preserve their memory as they retell the stories of those brave individuals who risked their lives in search of freedom.

These are FREE workshops but you must register here to attend: https://artcycletx.wixsite.com/freedomquilts

Michael Weisberg, M.D., author of The Hospitalist

What happens when you are admitted to the hospital as a patient, and the physician assigned to be your doctor has never seen you before and knows absolutely nothing about you?

The Hospitalist by Michael Weisberg, MD, is a very timely novel about the changing practice of medical care in the 21st century. The new normal is that hospitalists (doctors who only take care of sick patients in the hospital) now treat a patient in their sickest hours rather than their primary care doctor. Dr. Weisberg is a practicing gastroenterologist in Plano and a very interesting speaker.

Presented by Lochwood Branch Library Friends. This is a free event, open to the public.
