Sherri Burr, Princeton and Yale Law School graduate and author of 27 books, addresses how to take advantage of synchronistic events that point you in the direction your work is meant to travel.

Do you have a short or long form writing project? Sherri Burr, Princeton and Yale Law School graduate and author of 27 books, will address how to take advantage of synchronistic events that point you in the direction your work is meant to travel. Going through a bag of letters and finding one mentioning that a great-great aunt had lived in Wyoming led Burr on adventures to Wyoming, Utah, Ohio, Virginia, and London, England. She persevered in her research to track down ancestors who obtained freedom before the Civil War, and what their lives were like. The result was Complicated Lives: Free Blacks in Virginia, 1619-1865, published in time to honor the 400th anniversary of the first arrival of Africans on the shores of Virginia on August 19, 1619.
