We are proud to feature three brilliant authors who have helped create reports on local histories in the San Francisco Bay Area and Hartford, Connecticut. They will not only share their stories, but also share their processes and methods. We will also get into the nuts and bolts of how to create your own histories, how to find data, and how to collaborate for greater impact. This event will tell stories in the hopes of inspiring more people and organizations to undertake such efforts in their own communities.
