It is never too early to start your memoir.  By reminiscing out loud in class, answering provocative and probing questions, participating in group conversations to be recorded, and completing assignments each week, students will begin the process of organizing and presenting their life stories in writing.  At the end of the eight-week course, students will have the start of a full memoir.  Students from prior classes are welcome as we will be exploring new questions.
