Write your Life Story: journaling at the library

 

Need motivation to write your life story? Join this beginner's group on Monday, October 21 @3:30 pm in the WCR Conference Room.

 

Think about a saying you remember - from your parents, grandparents, or your husband, etc. Write about the memories these saying bring back.

 

Examples of some sayings:

Don't wish your life  away
Ignorance is bliss
This too shall pass
A son's first hero - Dad
Always pray and never give up - Luke 18:1

There's no right or wrong way. You can jot down ideas and write from those, or just come and listen.

 

NATIONAL READING GROUP MONTH

It's an opportunity for reading groups to reflect on their accomplishments and plan for the future. It's the perfect time to join or start a group.  National Reading Group Month is an initiative of the Women's National Book Association (WNBA). Founded in 1917, WNBA promotes literacy, a love of reading, and women's roles in the community of the book. Check their website for some Great Group Reads.
