080513 How to Tell Your Family Stories session at Meredith Library (126)


MEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library will be hosting a workshop on Family Stories: How and Why to Remember Them on Tuesday, August 6 at 4 p.m.

Telling personal and family stories is fun – and much more: storytelling connects strangers, strengthens links between generations, and gives children the self-knowledge to carry them through hard times. Knowledge of family history has even been linked to better teen behavior and mental health.

In this very active and interactive program, storyteller Jo Radner will share foolproof ways to mine memories and to interview relatives for meaningful stories, and participants will practice finding, developing, and telling their own tales. Paid for through a grant from the NH Humanities Council and the Friends of the Meredith Library. Light refreshments will be served.
