Tales of Courage, Tales of Loss

Did last or this year's fires affect you? The Mendo Fire Stories Project wants to hear about your experience. The initiative, a project of the Ukiah Library, is accepting narratives--or poetry, photographs, or images of art----for eventual inclusion in a book. Have a story to tell but don't think you have the chops to write it down? The library has writers who are prepared to interview and work with fire survivors to record their experiences. Funded by the Redwood Valley and Santa Rosa Community Recovery Fund, the published book will be available for purchase, as well as offered as a gift to those whose work it features. Participants may submit their work to mendofirestorybook@gmail.com. Those interested in being interviewed by a library writer may call 463-4490 and ask for the children's librarian. The submission deadline is October 12. For those who need practical help with property losses related to the fire, the Summer 2018 California Wildfires Helping Handbook offers up-to-date information on housing, government benefits, insurance, FEMA assistance, replacement of lost documents, and fraud prevention. Download it for free at media2.mofo.com/documents/180824-ca-wildfire-helping-handbook.pdf.
