Museum releases newest "Lifetimes of Memories"

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

The Barry County Museum will host a book signing for the 16th volume of "Lifetimes of Memories: Voices of Barry County" from 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18.

The newest volume of "Lifetimes of Memories" features Gretchen (Boyd) Cameron, OV Dodson, Charles and Nancy (Joslin) England and Beulah (Potter) Morlan.

"Lifetimes of Memories: Voices of Barry County" is a compilation of an oral history project that has been conducted by Schrediah Mahurin since June of 2005. In order to collect the narratives for the "Lifetimes of Memories" series, Mahurin interviewed dozens of individuals about their lives in Barry County. Those tape-recorded interviews were transcribed into the written narratives that can be found in the "Lifetimes of Memories" volumes.

Light refreshments will be served, and narrators and family members will be on hand to sign autographs and visit with those attending the book signing event.

The Barry County Museum is located on Highway 112 south of Cassville.

For more information about the oral history project or the upcoming book signing event, call the Barry County Museum at 847-1640.
