Join us on ZOOM to hear FAN members discuss their new book,
The Tuesday Memoir Group
October 22, 2020 at 11 am
Join FAN members Jo Anne Bander, Rachel Blechman, Marian Del Vecchio, Joy Malakoff, Tamara Nixon and Judith Wurtman as they discuss what began at a seminar in memoir writing at the annual Miami Book Fair.
“For many writers,” says one, “tracing the arc of their lives through memoir helps them discover what has influenced who they have become. For me it has been so much more. The best part has been the shared memories and deep friendships that have developed between the five of us as we found our own voices.”
“My essays are not a chronology,” writes another, “but together they do tell my story. Let me say before you begin, memories aren’t always accurate…Nonetheless, they are my truth…the essence of the matter for me.” Happily for us, the anthology they have made does just that and more, articulating moments of ordinary beauty and joy as well as sorrow and sometimes, glimpses of astonishing generosity and true bravado.
From first person accounts of historic events to seemingly quieter, deeply personal reflections on the nature of friendship, life and death, the stories within these pages offer a range of experiences.
Important, tender, funny and wise, the lives confessed by Jo Anne Bander, Rachel Blechman, Marian Del Vecchio, Joy Malakoff, Tamara Nixon and Judith Wurtman in The Tuesday Memoir Group Anthology offer a shining testament to the power of memory.
