Historians can recount events thanks to the historical and personal records that survive from those eras. Future historians will rely upon the records collected and created today to help tell our story for generations to come. And although record-keeping has changed dramatically over the last 100 years, the everyday stories of Idahoans remain as important as ever.
Idaho Press and the Idaho State Historical Society are partnering to preserve stories of this critical and historic time, but they need your help.
Join HannaLore Hein (State Historian) from the Idaho State Historical Society and Jeanne Huff (Community Engagement Editor) from Idaho Press as they talk about how they started capturing Idahoan’s reactions and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Moderator Alison Espindola (Events and Rental Coordinator, Idaho State Museum) will also explore with the panelists how you can get involved and share your own story. If you have questions you would like to ask, you can email them to [email protected] or submit them live during the event.
Make sure to grab your favorite happy hour beverage (Maybe something from our partners at Telaya Wine, like their 2018 Ciel du Cheval Syrah or 2016 Pinot Gris!) and settle in at home for this timely History Happy Hour- Share Your Story.
