Catching People’s Stories
Platt Memorial Library
Jane Beck has used the recorded interview as her major source of material for exhibits, media and written materials throughout her career. This technique puts the focus on people, personal history, family stories, experiences, values and attitudes—ordinary people often doing extraordinary things. This is a reflective talk on why people tell stories, what they mean to an individual, and examples of how they are used.
