The Tolland Public Library Foundation will hold its second training in conducting oral history interviews at the Old Tolland County Jail and Museum at 52 Tolland Green for Sunday, Sept. 11 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Thank you to the Tolland Historical Society for hosting this session, which is part of the foundation’s Tolland Oral History Performance Project.
Kristen Morgan, a foundation board member and associate professor of theatre and performance media at Eastern Connecticut State University, will explain the project, which centers on gathering vignettes and quotes from Tolland residents for inclusion in a script that will culminate in a public performance.
Kristen will also be demonstrating how to use video equipment that the foundation has purchased for the Tolland Public Library that patrons can check out for free.
After the session, plan on visiting the jail museum, which is operated by the historical society. Admission is free.
Registration is recommended. To register, email foundation board secretary Kate Farrish at [email protected].
