Special Writing Workshop: The Places We Come From, The Stories We Tell

March 22, 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Join author Judith Summerfield for a special writing workshop exploring the ways that we define ourselves through the stories we tell.

Writers will explore how to draw from memory, oral stories, history, genealogy, research, family artifacts, and from their own imaginations, to write their stories.
