This week I have been busy volunteering at the Association for American State and Local History Conference which just so happens to be here in St. Paul, MN, this year. It has been a ridiculously cool experience and I am enjoying learning from all the speakers and presenters!
I loved this quote from yesterday's keynote speaker, Garrison Keillor:
"The discovery that unbeknownst to you amazing things were happening in your vicinity, and if you'd have known about them they'd have changed your life. This is history."
It is neat to see your stomping grounds from someone else's perspective. Of course there is a lot to do, so I am going to keep this short and sweet! If you are here, be sure to say 'hi'!
Hi, I'm Tara! I am more than a huge fan of history, you might say I'm a little obsessed. I would spend a Friday night in with a glass of local wine and a reference book any night of the week. Learn more about me and my work here.
