The University of Scranton Hosts “Scranton’s Story” Spring Exhibition

Members News

Over the past two years, The University of Scranton and Scranton community has explored themes of history, belonging, and identity through Scranton’s Story: Our Nation’s Story, a series of humanities-based programs that culminated in an oral history initiative called “Scranton Stories.” First launched in fall 2023, this exhibition showcases portraits taken by photographer Byron Maldonado and personal statements and interview links from 33 community members to give voice to a broad array of Scranton experiences and connect them to our national story. 

At the public reception, attendees will have the opportunity to meet members of the Scranton Stories team and oral history interviewees and discuss the project.

The exhibition is free during library hours. For more information contact Michael Knies at 570-941-6341 or For April 4th event information, visit this page or RSVP here.
