Date: 2/17/2017, 2/24/2017, 3/3/2017, 3/10/2017
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
We all have stories. This class is about crafting those stories to create memoirs that are worth reading. Adventures and achievements are great topics; however, some students have created wonderful stories about a family trip or an autumn walk home from school. Sometimes the simple moments linger longest.

This is a slightly different memoir class. For those who are willing, it will be geared for publication or sharing of our work. Since we each have different life stories our topics will vary but the class will not. Each week we will have a little instruction in the writing process and then a good bit of sharing and feedback on our writing. We will work in small groups so that each student will be able to share a piece of writing each week.

  • Attendee must be 18 Years or older.
  • All registrants must have library card in good standing. Many of the programs offered through the Cape May County Library require registration prior to the start of the program. Programs that require registration will be marked on the calendar (online and print), in press releases, and on promotional posters. To ensure fairness, patrons who fail to appear for three (3) programs/classes will not be eligible for first time registration for a period of six months. Rather, these patrons will automatically be placed on the waiting list. If an opening is available, the said patron will be notified that he or she can attend. If a patron cannot attend a program/class, it is his or her responsibility to alert the library via its online registration or telephone at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the start of the program/class. If proper notice of cancellation is given, then the patron will not be moved out of good standing.
