We will participate in Preservation Week 2019 by hosting three preservation-themed webinars in the Special Collections and Archives reading room on the lower level of the ACU Brown Library from 1-2 pm on April 23, 25, and 26.
The one-hour webinars will focus on very practical strategies anyone can employ to preserve their family history. At each webinar we will feature three different recipes from the archives, primarily drawing on the 1974 Women of ACC Cookbook. If you’re in Abilene please come join us, and if you can’t make it in person we’ll share links so you can watch the webinars online. We will also share the recipes and some additional historical context about their authors. Below are the first three recipes we’re trying out– stay tuned for more!
Below are the recipes we’ll feature on Friday, April 26. Join us from 1-2 pm to learn about preserving family recipes.
