Your Memoirs – Your Written Legacy

Date: Mar 24, 2023
Time: 9:45 am - 12:15 pm
Location: Burchette Room

YOUR MEMOIRS—YOUR WRITTEN LEGACY The object of this course is to
get your family/personal stories on paper. Studies have shown that most
family stories fade beyond two generations. Our lives are filled with funny,
poignant, sad, spiritual, and meaningful stories. You have stories only you
can write. Most of us have wished we could ask about our families, but
there’s no one left to ask. Leave that written legacy for others and save
them that frustration. They will thank you for it. There is no instruction, but
we will discuss stories and the process of writing—don’t worry, it’s painless.
Each member should expect to write one story each week and read it to the
class. Listening to the stories of others frequently sparks memories of our
own, which we can add to our list of stories to write. At the end of the
semester, we will produce a class book to which I encourage you to
contribute your stories. Need more info? Email the instructor at gayleopie@austin.rr.com or call 512-704-6558 and leave a message. Be sure to
include your name, phone number, and a brief message.
Note: Instructor requests COVID vaccinations. Limit 12.
