Author Lori Godsey Anzini, “How to Write a Memoir”
Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014 2-4 p.m
People who write memoirs are like Gold Rush miners seeking pay dirt. They sift through memories of the past, recent or distant, hunting a rich vein of recollection, reflection, and fact to tell a story.
Lori Godsey Anzini will describe the process when she discusses “How to Write a Memoir” at a meeting of Fremont Area Writers on Saturday, Sept. 27.
Anzini is the author of “Escaping the Jaws of Life: A Widow’s Journey to Happiness,” which tells how she found joy after her husband’s death following Parkinson’s Disease and brain cancer. The book received recognition at book festivals in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.
She is also the author of “Through My Grandmothers Eyes: The Story of Flora Dolina,” the first volume of a series. You can find out more about her at lorianzini.authorsxpress.com.
