The Art of Memoir

On Wednesday January 16, 2013 at 7 PM at the Portsmouth Athenaeum, 7 Market Square, Carol Glover (Loving Hannah: Childhood Cancer Treatment from the Other Side of the Bed) will participate in a panel discussion along with Katherine Mayfield (The Box of Daughter:  Healing the Authentic Self) and James Vanderpol (And the Money Went Over the Railing: How a Holocaust Survivor from WWII Found a Future in the U.S.) answering the questions:

  • What motivates an author to write a memoir?
  • How does a writer uphold the truth of the story while using creative writing skills to make the story come alive?
  • How does a writer deal with the repercussions of writing about emotional experiences?

There will be light refreshments and the opportunity to talk with the authors and purchase books.

This event is part of the Portsmouth Athenæum’s Wednesday Writers Forum Series.
