History on Third Thursday: The Magic of Our Memories

Iowans are a people with roots. We grow well in the black soil that blankets our state, in this beautiful land between two rivers. Here are our homes, our families, our memories. We’ll discuss the importance of those memories—from first day of school to leaving home. We’ll embrace our similar experiences—from peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches to parallel parking. And we’ll reflect on life-changing events—from becoming a parent to the horror of 9/11. Truly, our memories have shaped us into who we are today. We’ll also talk about ways of interpreting the past—oral histories, storytelling and journaling. This event is free and open to the public. Location TBD
