Have you ever thought of what life is like in beautiful Southern Oregon,
and what people have done to make a living there?  Well, this new article
by Maureen Flanagan Battistella, Charlene Prinsen, and Thalia Truesdell is
a good start to answering that question.  Please download and read, “Stories
of Southern Oregon = Communities + Libraries + Museums + University,” here:

>From their article, “The Stories of Southern Oregon documentation project
was designed to collect oral histories of farmers, ranchers, miners, and
forestry as well as photographs, poetry, and song. First funded on a small
scale in 2015 by an Oregon Heritage Commission grant to Southern Oregon
University, the project was continued and expanded in 2017 thanks to
funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities Common Heritage
grant program. Memories and photographs were captured at Story Day events
conducted in association with the Southern Oregon University
Sociology/Anthropology Program, the SOU Hannon Library, local public
libraries, and historical societies and museums.”

Please read on, as a short introduction cannot do justice to the stories of
Southern Oregon, and the efforts of these librarians.  Perhaps you can
adapt their methods to connect and interact with their community, to yours.

Thank you,
Charles Wood
