Central Wisconsin Book Festival Family Memoir Workshop With Jen Rubin
If you've ever thought about writing a family memoir, join us for a workshop during the Central Wisconsin Book Festival to learn some tips and techniques!
Jen Rubin will discuss her process of writing a family memoir that centered around the small business her family owned for 80 years. Jen will talk about how to balance 3 generations, deal with thorny family issues, and how to include enough history and sociology to inform the story but not so much that the central story is overwhelmed. Jen is a skilled storyteller and brought an oral storytelling approach to her writing. This will be an interactive workshop with a mixture of presentation, storytelling, Q & A, and small group work.
Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-261-7230 to sign up or for more information.
