Earlier this month, we announced the Library’s first-ever online conference for teachers, and today we’d like to say a bit more about the keynote speaker, Carol Highsmith.

Highsmith, a distinguished and richly-published American photographer, has donated her work to the Library of Congress since 1992. She’s long been a favorite around the Library’s education office for her recent photos that evoke communities from around the United States. She and Helena Zinkham, Chief of the Library’s Prints and Photographs Division will discuss her work, her influences, and her motivation for donating the rights to the American people for copyright-free access in an hour-long session, “Preserving Our Communities with Photography.”

You can find the entire online conference schedule and registration information here. Register for “Preserving Our Communities with Photography” today!
