Eunice Hess

She not only took care of the house, but we had a theater. She took care of seeing all of the salesmen that came to town and choosing the pictures that would be shown. She absolutely would not show any pictures that weren’t suitable for the family.

Eunice: She kept so busy. She not only took care of the house, but we had a theater. She took care of seeing all of the salesmen that came to town and choosing the pictures that would be shown. She absolutely would not show any pictures that weren’t suitable for the family. When we started out actually they were silent movies. So, she was kept very busy and was very responsible.

The Power to Transform

Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, and challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Our storytelling ability, a uniquely human trait, has been with us as long as we’ve been able to speak and listen. Not only do people love to tell stories, people love to hear stories!

That’s why we’ve partnered with Carrie Gallahan, founder of Saving Libraries. Carrie was inspired by this African proverb to start a movement to save the stories of our elders.
