NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS Writing Your Memoir  Beginning October 15, 22, 28 and November 5, at 9:15-10:15 in the Church Conference Room; Led by Erika Solberg. Have you ever wanted to tell a part of your life story but weren’t sure how to start? As opposed to an autobiography which tells your whole life story, a memoir focuses on just a piece of a person's life. In this four-session course we will discuss how to gather your memories, choose your audience, structure your story, and use such tools as dialogue and description to write a memoir that is readable and evocative. There will be a special emphasis on how to write about faith and Christian identity. For more information, visit erikasolberg.com
