If you’re in Austin Monday evening, please join us at our new studios for a special listening session and panel discussion of Forged in Flames: An Oral History of the Labor Day Wildfires, a special project on the 2011 fires by KUT News and StateImpact Texas.

We’ll be listening to segments of the Forged in Flames documentary on the fires, with a panel discussion and Q&A with KUT News Director Emily Donahue, StateImpact Texas reporter Mose Buchele and Erin Purdy of The University of Texas at Austin’s Briscoe Center for American History. You’ll get to hear how the documentary and oral history project were produced and ask your questions about the fires and the project.
