200Columbus Bicentennial Hilltop Stories
Greetings, John,

We always say in the Zone, "The story we tell about ourselves is the story others will tell about us."  Well, come hear - and tell - that story! 

Join us for a 200Columbus Bicentennial Celebration of storytellers on the Hilltop: "Intimate Accounts of the Hilltop's Past and Present."  Not only do we want to present our current collection of Hilltop stories, but hope to record the stories of participants who are willing to share. 

Where: Hilltop Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library
511 South Hague Avenue  Columbus, OH 43204 (map)

When: 6:15 -8:00 pm, October 23, 2012

Details: We will provide light snacks and beverages for all and show eight selected Hilltop stories (see list at the bottom of this message). After the screening, we hope some of those attending will allow us to record their stories. All stories will be permanently and publicly available via the internet thanks to OSU Libraries. 

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP Dickie Selfe at or call 614-546-6854
