Looking for inspiration about your hometown to lift your spirits in early October? The Edmonton Public Library invites you to Edmonton: In Our Own Voices on Monday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. in the Theatre of the Stanley A. Milner Library. Hear Edmontonians of all ages tell a fresh version of the city’s history in an evening of vivid storytelling.

Linda Goyette, writer and editor of the Edmonton: A City Called Home project, will introduce some of the storytellers working on a creative community history project to celebrate the City of Edmonton’s centennial in 2004. Listen to descendants of Edmonton’s first citizens — and newcomers who have arrived in recent years — tell stories that reflect our shared experiences. Local author Tony Cashman will be our special guest.

This (free) event is sponsored by the Edmonton Public Library as part of READ IN 2002. Refreshments will be served. Join us! For more information call 496-7046.
