Vermont Reads: Intro to Oral History Projects
Home » Events » Vermont Reads: Intro to Oral History Projects
March 7: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This year’s Vermont Reads book selection, The Most Costly Journey, features the stories of 19 migrant farm workers in Vermont as illustrated by New England cartoonists. It was created by the El Viaje Más Caro Project.
In this event we will go over the fundamentals of how to conduct an oral history interview, resources you can use, and possible oral history projects.
