A New Storytelling Project at the Dayton Metro Library

reinvent

DAYTON, OH (January 21, 2014) -- Can an interactive website become a living chronicle of our city's struggles and resurgence? The Reinvention Stories Project seeks to answer that question with its website ReInventionStories.org, which shares the stories of Daytonians dealing with economic turmoil by changing jobs, goals and focus. The Dayton Metro Library will host several free programs discussing the project and explaining how to participate.

The Reinvention Stories Project was led by award-winning local filmmakers Julia Reichert & Steven Bognar who, along with WYSO Radio volunteers and staff, visited Dayton neighborhoods in the summer of 2012 to interview people about their lives and struggles in Dayton. The surprising and inspiring stories of adversity, resilience and reinvention are shared on WYSO and added to the website as short documentary films.

Five Dayton Metro Libraries located in neighborhoods where residents were interviewed will host programs led by Reinvention Stories volunteers who will describe the project and explain how participants can share their own stories on the website. All programs are free and open to the public:

East Branch, Saturday, April 5, 3:00-4:00 p.m.
2008 Wyoming Street, 496-8930

"ReInvention Stories was one of the most challenging and engaging projects I've ever worked on, but it was fantastic to create a project all about my home city," said Reichert, who has been involved with four films nominated for Academy Awards, including recently nominated Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall .

For more information about the library programs, call the library's External Relations Department at 496-8901.
