If the Fence Could Talk
Written by Brad Robison and illustrated by Margaret Hoge | $19.95

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.

If the Fence Could Talk shares what the fence became in the days, months and years that followed for the rescue workers, family members, friends and strangers who gathered at the site. From teddy bears and t-shirts to notes and flowers, for more than 20 years the fence has been a place where people come to remember. With a section remaining permanently, the fence remains a place of worship, solace, hope and tears.
