Oral History Community Workshop scheduled for May 9, 5:30-7:30, Worcester Public Library

Have you ever wondered how to conduct an oral history? Would you like to preserve the memories of relatives for a family history? Are you a teacher who is thinking about incorporating oral history into your classroom? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please join us for a free Oral History Community Workshop. Presenters from the Worcester Women’s Oral History Project (WWOHP) will discuss many topics, including proper preparation for an interview, required legal documents, recording devices, and transcription of the interview. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. Authors and Co-Chairs of WWOHP, Charlene L. Martin and Maureen Ryan Doyle will also offer a reading from their book, Voices of Worcester Women: 160 Years after the First National Woman’s Rights Convention.

For further information, please contact Charlene L. Martin at chmartin@townisp.com or Maureen Ryan Doyle at mryandoyle@aol.com.
