Local author Jeff Manes has been interviewing Region residents for years and publishing these interviews in local newspapers. In addition to working on documentaries and writing in a variety of genres, Jeff has worked to compile the oral histories he has collected into All Worth Their Salt: The People of Northwest Indiana. The hundreds of interviews Jeff has recorded describe all walks of life in Northwest Indiana. Arranged thematically, Worth Their Salt gives a unique picture of the history and culture of our Porter County communities. Jeff will be releasing additional editions throughout 2016, and will stop by the Museum on Thursday, November 3 at 5:30p to read and discuss the newest edition of All Worth Their Salt.
