Updated: September 26, 2014

Richmond Heights' rich historical past can come alive for teens in 6th -12th grade!

A new group is forming that will capture the stories of life in the Hadley Township here in Richmond Heights.  This African-American community was created in 1907 and played a role in the development of African-American culture in St. Louis.

The program will pair youth with seniors in a series of oral history interviews. These interviews will then be added to the Richmond Heights archives to preserve the history of an important community being lost to development.

COME BE PART OF RECORDING OUR COMMUNITY'S HISTORY!

    Monday, September 29 from 3:45-4:30 pm at The Heights (and there will be pizza!)

And The Mountains Echoed               

by Khaled Hosseini

 An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else. Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns , has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe, from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos, the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.
