Remember Me? A Facilitated Memoir Course

Instructor, Cindy Eastman
Fridays, May 10, 17, 24, 31
10 am – 11:30 pm

Most of us want to leave a legacy; an account of our lives to pass on to our family so that the past lives on for our children and grandchildren. Writing a memoir is also a good way to chronicle one’s life as a way to reflect and make meaning of the choices and decisions we’ve made.  Rather than teach you “how” to write a memoir, this class will support you in “why” you want to write a memoir, although there will be practical methods and writing skills presented.  If you’re almost done or just beginning, please join us as we honor the memory that is our lives.
