Memoir Writing Group
Monday, March 21, 2022
Have you been thinking about how to share the story of your life? Would you like to write about your experiences but aren’t sure how to begin? The New Ulm Public Library will be starting a Memoir Writing Group on Monday, March 21, at 10 a.m. in the Fred Johnson room. This first meeting will feature a workshop taught by Linda Good, facilitator of the Mankato Memoir Group that has met weekly for over 11 years! During the pandemic, the group published a book, Preserving Memories, of their memoirs with 57 memoirs written by 21 authors in their 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Linda will discuss the who, what, where, when, and why of getting a group started. She will also share research about the benefits of memoir writing. Participants will be invited to participate in a writing experience.
