Public Lecture - "Georgestown: A Neighbourhood Talking Tour" Feb 27

Public Lecture - "Georgestown: A Neighbourhood Talking Tour" 

The Georgestown Neighbourhood Association annual heritage event. 
Wednesday, February 27th, at 7:30 p.m. 
The Lantern, 35 Barnes Road. 

In September 2018, the incoming class of Master's and Ph.D. students in the Folklore Department at Memorial University researched the oral history of Georgestown for their Field School project. They presented their findings as a walking tour to great success. Now, they're back again to share their stories of Georgestown with the neighbourhood. Stories of ghosts, childhood shenanigans, and bygone family businesses as well as the sights, sounds, and scents that bring Georgestown to life will showcase the neighbourhood's favourite memories and lasting influences. If you have fond memories of Georgestown, or want to learn its hidden history, come to this Folklore Field School reunion talk! 

One night only! Discussion, tea, coffee, and treats to follow.
