Local author Jim Farfaglia teamed up with the Fulton Public Library to get the people of Fulton to share their stories of living in the city through the Fulton Memoirs Writing Project.

More than 40 locals participated, and will read excerpts from their work aloud at 6 p.m. Sept. 19 at the Fulton Municipal Building.

Made possible by a grant from the state Council on the Arts, Farfaglia led a series of writing workshops to draw memories out of his participants for the project, called “The Stories from Our Past that Inspire Our Future.” The memoirs will be collected for a book, the profits of which will benefit the library.
