    Each of us has a wealth of memories.

    The goal of this once a month program is writing your life stories.

    At every gathering each person has 10 minutes to share a story with our group members in a very supportive environment. No one’s work and writing skills are ever critiqued. Your unique style of writing is the right way to write.

    Please join us every month. Relive your memories that will one day become your memoir.

    Surprise your family who’ve wanted you to do this. The biggest surprise you’ll find is recalling the stories of your life.

    We look forward to seeing you.

    The book club will be discussing My Remarkable Journey by Katherine Johnson.

     

    Are you interested in reading and discussing non-fiction books, mainly autobiographical, by women? Then this is your Book Club! This is an opportunity to read about real life accounts of extraordinary women and most of it first hand through memoirs and autobiographies.

    We’ll begin each discussion by offering up some tidbits and questions to get us started and then it’s an open forum. Our hope is that together we will get to know, not only important women in history, but women who are brave, creative, passionate, and original thinkers.

    It does not matter how expert you are with the works or the authors. If you love the idea of reading and discussing non-fiction books by women who have powerful and inspiring stories to share this might be the perfect place to begin. Maybe you’ll be inspired to tell your own story.

    To quote Malala Yousafzai: “One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world”.
