Let’s Chat with Laura! Writing Your Own History

On August 3, the IRC continued its newly established bi-monthly English conversation hour that gives Tunisians the opportunity to visit the embassy and chat with an American native speaker of English. The topic was “Writing Your Own History” and participants discussed personal stories as well as the idea that history will be created by those who record their experiences for the future. In support of democratic values, attendees talked about the meaning of having a free voice and compared journalism to storytelling.
