Networking: “Amending America” exhibit at the National Archives Museum
April 21, 2016 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
Everyone fancies themselves an editor…. Alas, most are mistaken.
Join your fellow (actual) writers and editors in touring the “Amending America” exhibit at the National Archives Museum in DC.
Learn more about the 11,000 amendments that have been proposed to the U.S. Constitution between 1787 and 2014. Only 27 amendments have succeeded and this year marks the 225th anniversary of the first 10, The Bill of Rights.
As proud and choosy wordsmiths, this exhibit was made for us! Of course, the other “Charters of Freedom” on display (including the Declaration of Independence) should also make our picky pens proud.
