"Telling Your Story in Pictures" will be given by Karren Pell and Carole King, two ladies who have produced several historical picture books about Montgomery and other Alabama places. They will share their tips on using pictures to tell your family story.

Admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be offered after the program, as always. Please come to enjoy the program and the fellowship with other family and local history enthusiasts--and bring a friend or two along with you!
