This summer I’ve enjoyed several Torrance-related conversations and activities, some related to the Reading Group hosted by Marty Folsom, others related to hosting the 2021 Workshop-Retreat, and soon the Firbush Retreat. In addition, there’s been progress on the Torrance Oral History project, with the posting of the manual online and preparation behind the scenes of the transcriptions. Here are some videos in reverse chronological order; a few other links or videos will be added later.
