Oral History in the Dining Room

Oral History in the Dining Room

Six years ago, I conducted an oral history interview with my grandmother, or Beppe as we called her. A few short months after the interview, she passed away at the age of 89. After her funeral all of her family gathered together and we listened to her speak once again through a recording, telling us the stories that we had heard so many times before with her thick accent and mispronunciations of a language she never quite mastered.
