Oral History Talk at the Loring-Greenough House
November 11, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to capture the stories of your family or record your own life adventures? Join us for a special oral history-themed lecture Tuesday, November 11th at 7:00 PM. Thatcher Freund, a memoir writer and journalist, will talk about the importance of stories in our lives, and why it matters so much that we preserve them not just for our descendants and the people who will live here a century from now, but as a vital historical record for future historians who will want to understand our time.
Thatcher has lived in New England off and on for the last twenty years. His published work includes Objects of Desire: The Lives of Antiques and Those Who Pursue Them, a biography of three pieces of American furniture from their creation in the 18th century to their sales at Sotheby’s some 250 years later. Besides his speaking engagements, Thatcher helps people to write their own memoirs and teaches workshops on memoir writing.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
