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