There are many good reasons for writing memoir. First, the delight of visiting your past. Next, the companionship that flourishes as we come together and share our stories. Then, the new sense you will make of your life. Finally, your kids and grandkids will thank you. Each week, you’ll write on a different theme at home—a theme that is designed to help you unearth memories and reflect on your life. When we meet, we’ll read our stories aloud to the group.
