Storytelling

“If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” - Rudyard Kipling

No, the Legislative Reference Library won't be having storytime like many public libraries do, but that doesn't mean stories aren't important. The library has recently acquired some "stories" that give individual perspectives on moments and places in history:

Lost Minnesota: Stories of Vanished Places by Jack El-Hai. This book tells the stories of 89 landmarks throughout Minnesota. The St. Croix Review said "This is a book sure to delight the Minnesota history enthusiast and anyone who is curious about the state’s changing urban, small town, and rural landscapes."

Everybody Has a Story, Everybody is the Story: East Grand Forks History Book 1987-2011: Featuring the Flood Fight & Recovery.  "This book was written to document happenings in the 25-year period between East Grand Forks’ centennial observance in 1987 and the present. The single, most important and memorable event in the time period was, of course, the flood of 1997. ... The individual stories told in the Personal Experience section of this book were developed over a five-year period"--Page 5.

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D Vance. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck. The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were "dirt poor and in love," and moved North from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them.

This last book doesn’t fit the personal story theme, but with the 2016 general election rapidly approaching, we’ll end with:

Ballot Battles: The History of Disputed Elections in the United States by Edward Foley. "The 2000 presidential election, with its problems in Florida, was not the first major vote-counting controversy in the nation’s history--nor the last. Ballot Battles traces the evolution of America’s experience with these disputes, from 1776 to now, explaining why they have proved persistently troublesome and offering an institutional solution"--provided by publisher.

All of the books above are available at the LRL. Contact a librarian at 651-296-8338 or refdesk@lrl.leg.mn to check out a book or two.
