Writing a Memoir to Understand Your Family
All Levels | How do memoirists keep their voices distinct while honoring the voice of family members? We will read excerpts from memoirs by Kao Kalia Yang, James McBride, Kat Chow, Maya Shanbhag Lang, Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, Laura Davis, and Laraine Herring. Through the use of interviews, dialogue, letters, speculation, invention, and memory, we will look at how these authors brought their family members to life on the page. Come with photos or mementos of the member(s) of your family you wish to write about.
