NORTH MINNEAPOLIS TORNADO AFTERMATH STORIES WILL BE COLLECTED ON MAY 19 AT TWO HENNEPIN COUNTY LIBRARIES
People affected by the May 22, 2011 tornado that struck North Minneapolis are invited to share their stories at two Hennepin County libraries on Saturday, May 19.
 
Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater will collect personal stories of those affected to raise public awareness of their challenges, with the end goal of publishing the material in a book.
 
Stories will be collected 12:30-2 p.m. on May 19 at Hennepin County Library – Sumner, 611 Van White Blvd., Minneapolis, and 3-4:30 p.m. on May 19 at Hennepin County Library – North Regional, 1315 Lowry Ave. N., Minneapolis.
 
To share your story, register online at www.hclib.org.  Click on Events & Classes, then do a keyword search on the word Temporary. Or call the Sumner Library at 612-543-6875 or North Regional Library at 612-543-8450. Walk-in participants are also welcomed.
 
Kathleen Mukwashi of Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater said the troupe is interested in the topic because the troupe includes “Northsiders” and has worked in the community and on community projects.
 
She said the dance and theater company received Minnesota State Arts Board funding to compile stories and photos of area residents’ tornado and aftermath experiences, primarily as a record for those participating in the project.  They haven’t yet contracted with a publisher, but anticipate publication in 2013.  It is not known at this time if copies will be for sale to the general public.
 
For more information, call 763-521-7738.
