Multiple languages, historical epochs, cultures and places can overwhelm the writer attempting to create a family memoir that spans centuries and continents. Annette Gendler dealt with these dilemmas in her memoir Jumping Over Shadows and, in this one-day workshop, will share the lessons she learned about how to make a complicated, multi-faceted story work.
This is a two-session workshop, meeting on June 20 and June 27.
