Stories from the Flood

Were you affected by the flooding last August? Your story matters!

The library is partnering with the Driftless Writing Center’s “Stories from the Flood” project to help people affected by the flooding record and share their stories as part of the unique history of our area. Anyone who was affected by the flooding in any way has a story that we want to hear and record for future generations.

There will be two story collection workshops at Knutson Memorial Library in April: on Thursday, April 11th from 6:00-8:00 PM and again on Saturday, April 13th from 10:00 – Noon. Individuals are invited to share their stories in ways that feel comfortable to them. We will offer writing support, audio recording, and video recording options. With your permission, your stories will be preserved in online archives and at the Vernon County Historical Society. For more information, please contact Karen at the library.

The Driftless Writing Center, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation operating in Viroqua. The Center provides literary and educational opportunities, readings, discussions, writing classes and workshops, and presentations of original writings by its members and the community at large.
