More than 80 students from Smart, Sudlow, Walcott, Williams, Wood, and Young Intermediate schools interviewed 24 Irish-American senior citizens for this year’s Iowa Stories 2000 Project. After doing independent research on Irish culture, followed-up with the interview, the students created an oral history project in the form of PowerPoint presentations, storyboards, and videos that will be housed in the Davenport Public Library – Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center as primary research for future generations. These projects will be on display at the Iowa Stories 2000 Reception, taking place on Thursday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m., at Frank L. Smart Intermediate School in Davenport (1934 W 5th Street). The public is invited to attend this special free celebration, which will feature live performances from the Mullane-Healy-O’Brien Irish Dance Company and the Quad Cities Ceili Club. Free refreshments will also be provided. For more information, contact the Library’s PR Office at 563-888-3371.
