Spokane on the Horizon: Telling Richer Stories of Place–A Reading List

Posted on: October 10th, 2012 by Preservation Leadership Forum Staff

After a long holiday weekend we have the last of our reading lists which provides context for our third Conversation Starter session at the National Preservation Conference.  Come prepared for a great discussion on Friday, November 2, for “Telling Richer Stories of Place.”

The stories we tell about historic places are not always easy and we have learned they are not always complete. But preservationists are rededicating themselves to finding the ways and words to link past to present, story to mission, and historic sites to the community. This session brings together an inspiring group of advocates who have found ways to tell a richer story of place and in so doing build a constituency and a plan for its preservation. You will be challenged to re-examine your own story of place and share the obstacles and opportunities you are confronting.

Moderator: Estevan Rael-Galvez, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Washington, D.C.

Speakers: Keith Magee, The National Public Housing Museum, Chicago, IL; Edgar Garcia, City of Los Angeles; Michelle Magalong, My HiFi, Corona, CA; Aissia Richardson, Uptown Entertainment & Development Corp., Philadelphia, PA
