Intergenerational Project (Remembering...)


These short stories by Mrs. Barger’s creative writing class were based on interviews with individuals from the Grinnell Senior Center. All stories were then compiled into a single, 28-page document, Remembering… An Inter-generational Project. 

Individual pieces range from one to four pages and include both direct quotes and summary. A link to download this PDF is included here, and a list of interviewees along with the page numbers of their interviews can be found below.
