Back by popular demand! Brown Bag Lunch Discussions are hour-long sessions featuring local personalities and prominent figures from the artistic, cultural, historical, educational, and media sectors to present a range of topics that audiences can both enjoy and engage in via question and answer sessions that will follow each presentation. Seniors and retirees, second shift employees, and the general public will be able to access and learn about local history and culture in an engaging, entertaining, and educational format.

Brown Bag Discussions are held in the MWC offices on the ground floor of the Rock Island Public Library (410 19th St. Rock Island), and are free and open to everyone. Bring your lunch and join us for an invigorating discussion!

Our next event will feature Devin Hansen, author of “Guts: The Lane Evans Story” (Strong Arm Press, 2019). Hansen will read from the book, take questions, and have books available for purchase.

Event is free & open to the public.

If you have any questions, call Ryan Collins at 309-732-7330 or email at mwc@midwestwritingcenter.org.
