If the Fence Could Talk
by Brad Robison
Illustrated by Margaret Reynolds Hoge

What have you left on the fence? A note, picture, race bib, finisher's medal... What does the fence mean to you? 

Author Brad Robison and illustrator Margaret Reynolds Hoge, tells the story of the fence that was erected to protect and became a place of remembrance for Oklahoma.

Brad Robison, an archivist at the memorial, and Margaret Reynolds Hoge, a local artist and school teacher, share how the fence has remained a major focal point for the Memorial along with the items left by family, friends, loved ones and total strangers.

"On April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City was changed forever when the unforgivable act of one individual took the lives of 168 men, women, and children and injured hundreds more. Following the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, a fence was stretched around two city blocks to protect the site during
the rescue and recovery efforts."

Join us to hear what the fence became in the days, months, and years that followed.
