Once Upon a Memoir
Be sure to join us at Clark County Library on November 5 to see Nicole along with Jean Munson for a frank discussion about the art of airing your dirty laundry in public (aka telling the truth about your life and experiences). How do you pick themes to explore? How do you decide to depict others who were there? How do you keep it from turning into navel-gazing, and make something we all can read and engage with? Look for "Once Upon a Memoir" on the programming schedule from 2 p.m. - 2:50 p.m. in the classroom.
