Memoir Writing

Thursday, December 18, 2014 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

WHAT'S YOUR STORY? Your life experience is a story that only you can tell. Whether you want to write about your unique experiences growing up/traveling/working, etc., or you want to capture your entire life story for your grandchildren, this is the class for you. You don't have to be a polished writer to chronicle these stories for all time! Examples of successful memoirs are discussed as well as techniques for organizing your thoughts and putting them on paper. Cost is $60. Full payment by cash or check is required at least three days prior to the first class or registration will be cancelled. No refunds will be given for cancellations or no-shows. If you are a non-library cardholder, please register in-person in the administration office or by phone (847-432-0216 ext. 119).
