Jane C. Beck will present “Catching People’s Stories,” a Vermont Humanities Council program, on Wednesday, July 31, at 7 p.m. at the Greensboro Free Library, 53 Wilson St., Greensboro. Beck, who founded the Vermont Folklife Center in 1983 and served as its executive director for almost three decades, has used the recorded interview as her major source of material for exhibits, media and written materials throughout her career.

This technique puts the focus on people, personal history, family stories, experiences, values and attitudes — ordinary people often doing extraordinary things. This is a reflective talk on why people tell stories, what stories mean to an individual, and examples of how stories are used.
