MANCHESTER - Every family has a story and the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications wants to help you tell yours.
Raconteur Fritz Wetherbee and journalist-authors John Clayton and Meg Heckman lead a who’s who of story-tellers and historians for the annual “Telling Your Family Story” workshop on Sat., March 22, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the school.
“This popular program teaches how to uncover family or community stories, how to present them and how to preserve them for future generations,” said David Tirrell-Wysocki, executive director of the non-profit Manchester school. “These skills are useful for local historians who record town lore and for residents who just want to make sure their dinner-table tales from grandma and grandpa are never forgotten.”
The program focuses on interviewing and listening skills, research and presentation, and how to preserve priceless photos and documents that are part of every family’s, or community’s, history.
Registration is $50.00, and includes lunch. Register at www.loebschool.org or 627-0005.
