When Memoir Meets History
December 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Mimi Schwartz’s, When History Is Personal, captures 25 moments in her life, each heightened by the history, politics, and social issues that shaped them. Her narrative essays look inward, as memoir does, and outward at her world, as she experienced it, mid-twentieth century to today. Her last book, Good Neighbors, Bad Times, won the New Hampshire’s Outstanding Literary Nonfiction Award and a Foreword Book Award for Best Memoir. After a short break she invites those interested to stay for a short writing workshop to explore the ways that memoir and history connect in their lives.
