Hidden Memory: Family History Project Workshop presented by Anne Shimojima

A search for old family photographs and historical documents led to an interview with a 91-year old aunt about the Japanese-American internment camps in World War II. This blossomed into a hard bound book of photos, digital slide shows, a DVD for each family member, and finally, a story for performance. Come and learn how you can preserve memories for your own family and give the gift of your family’s story.


Anne Shimojima has delighted audiences of all sizes with her graceful and spirited tellings of folktales from her Asian heritage and around the world. She has taught graduate courses in storytelling and presented this workshop at the National Storytelling Conference in 2008. The story that grew out of this workshop was performed at the 2007 JustStories Storytelling Festival in Chicago.


Discounted ticket of $10 for the evening performance available for workshop participants on the day of the workshop.
