The Book-In-Hand Roadshow chose Tahoe’s Bona Fide Books for its memoir writing event, “Holiday Memories: Learn How to Create a Family Memoir this Thanksgiving,” on Sunday, Nov. 23, from 6:30 to 9PM.
Whether your children have asked you to recapture treasured moments, stories, and traditions, or simply to record valuable family information, many seniors are now sitting down to write about their lives.
At this workshop, former Random House Senior Editor and memoir writing coach Jennifer Basye Sander will help you get that book project started! She’ll guide you through the process of putting your memories onto the page and then turning them into a more structured personal memoir. You’ll learn how to create a family memoir; capture, document and organize the stories; and, determine the theme of your memoir.
Who should come? Writers, people thinking about writing a book, and those who just want to get out of the house for a few hours before the holiday madness sets in. This event is supported by Poets & Writers, Inc. through a grant it has received from The James Irvine Foundation.
This South Lake Tahoe event takes place Sunday, Nov. 23, 6:30 – 9pm; Bona Fide Books, 1069 Magua Street, #4, in Meyers.
Register on-line at www.TheBookInHandRoadshow.com Session fee $30; Seniors $25 or for more information contact Ingrid Lundquist (916) 719-1776.
