1:30 p.m.
At the Wareham Free Library, 59 Marion Road, Wareham

On Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at 1:30 PM, the Wareham Free Library and the Wareham Historical Society will host: “Carving Out Your Story: An Oral History Workshop.”

This interactive and free 90-minute workshop will help uncover interesting stories from your life. Using story prompts and interactive activities, award-winning storytellers Karen Chase and Andrea Lovett will guide you through the process of finding nuggets that deserve to be remembered.

For the past several years, Karen and Andrea have collaborated with senior citizens in the Greater Lakeville/Freetown area, helping them excavate priceless memories.

A few of the stories have included the joy of winning a coveted bicycle race and the resulting mayhem, a young bride’s excitement moving away from a small-town to join her drafted husband during the Korean Conflict, and a historic meeting with Coretta Scott King.

To register for this event, please contact Reference/Outreach Librarian Steven Miller at (508) 295-2343, extension 1012 or via e-mail. Attendees should bring a notebook, pencil, and a willingness to explore and have fun.

This event is sponsored by the Wareham Historical Society and the Friends of the Wareham Free Library.
