PBS Library Documentary in Production
October 29, 2017
This past September, many of you submitted articles to the WHRC Newsletter detailing your club’s history with founding and supporting libraries. The sheer volume of response, and the incredible stories that the articles detailed, made it clear that libraries and education has been and remains a central pillar of what makes our clubwomen so incredible. Your achievements have not gone unnoticed.
Dr. Letitia Langord is currently conducting research for a PBS documentary which will explore the development of traveling libraries. Part of this documentary will be dedicated to the work accomplished by GFWC clubwomen. In a description of her project, Dr. Langord noted that “since learning the story of GFWC, I have to think that the phrase – if you can read this thank a librarian (or teacher) – should be amended to say – thank the GWFC.”
Dr. Langord holds a PhD in Environmental Policy, and has produced several documentaries. Her credits include “Working River” which won an honorable mention at the New York Film Festival, and “Dude Ranch Days” which was aired nationally on PBS stations. If you would like to support Letitia’s project, or if you have information which might aid in her research, please feel free to reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
