A new Broadway musical is based on the story of air passengers who had been stranded in Lewisporte, Newfoundland and the townspeople who comforted them following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
The grateful passengers, led by Shirley Brooks-Jones, created an endowed scholarship fund for high school graduates in the Lewisporte area. Thus began a connection that has spanned two decades and forever changed hundreds of lives.
The exhibit Building Ohio State: From Forest to the Renovation of the Thompson Library, which examines the shared history of Ohio's forests and The Ohio State University, runs through May 14 at the library. A three-part video chronicles the exhibit.
