Write stories prompted by objects from your recent or not-so-recent past.

Such objects might include a recipe, photograph, toy, or home movie. We'll talk about augmenting memories as necessary through online records, maps, newspapers, or other sources and well cover some basics of memoir writing in each session of this six-week class. Participants will have the opportunity to turn one memoir piece into a short video with library equipment, including the new recording studio at Strongsville Branch, assisted by library staff. The library will host a reading and reception for participants and their guests where these videos will be shown on Sunday May 20, from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

Laura Grace Weldon (lauragraceweldon.com) is an editor, writer, and the author of two books. Her articles, essays, and poetry have appeared in a variety of commercial and literary publications.
