LiveStories: Nearing Journey's End


American Memoir, by Henry Seidel Canby., Digital ID 490259, New York Public LibraryIt's hard to believe that the LiveStories memoir writing workshop at the Grand Central Library is nearing its conclusion.  This has been a fascinating, emotional, cathartic, and educational journey for us all.  With the help of our two wonderful teaching artists, Annie and Lauren, and our generous funders at Lifetime Arts,  we have learned how to craft our personal stories, and in some cases, even to dramatize them. We have made new friends and, in just a short time, become part of each other's lives.

On Saturday, November 20th at 2:00 PM, we will be presenting and sharing our stories with friends, family and the general public.  The stories that have emerged from our nine weeks together are, in turn, shocking, heartbreaking, painful, insightful and full of emotion and beauty.  In addition to the workshop participants, we also have a few wonderful professional actors who will be helping us bring our stories to life for all of you.  If you have ever needed proof that "every person has a story," our final presentation will be just that.  I invite everyone who has an interest in memoir or personal essay to join us for what promises to be a very surprising and emotional afternoon.
