Speak, Memory: The Role of Memory in Reading and Writing
October 22, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
With authors Bonnie Sherr Klein, Marion Crook, & Claire Finlayson
A panel of local authors Bonnie Sherr Klein (Slow Dance: A Story of Stroke, Love and Disability, and Beep, Beep, Bubbie), Marion Crook (Always Pack a Candle: A Nurse in the Cariboo-Chilcotin) and Claire Finlayson (Dispatches from Ray’s Planet: A Journey through Autism) will present short readings from their books, three of which were reviewed by the Vancouver Sun’s Tom Sandborn — a special guest. All of their books draw on memory and exemplify different ways of relating to lived experience. Then join a discussion of the books’ themes, the current popularity of memoirs, and the alchemical work of the writer turning raw memory into literature.
