At the end of the story circle held at the Learning History workshop in Feb 2008, participants were asked to give each story they had told a title. And then each group (there were 5 in all) was asked if these stories were made into a book, what would it be called. This group called their imaginary storybook - "Tales from the Carbon Face".
