Griffin Free Public Library – Auburn, NH

Workshop: Writing Family Stories

What family stories do you carry with you? What story do you tell over and over? What landscape do you cherish the most?

One of the deepest human instincts is to tell our life stories, to figure out who we are and what it means to be human. Family, Memory, Place: Writing Family Stories is an interactive workshop led by Maura MacNeil that explores how the landscapes of our lives shape the stories that we tell. Participants explore the themes of family, memory and place through sample narratives and a series of short writing exercises, gaining a deeper awareness of how their stories can preserve personal, generational, and communal history.

This workshop is free and open to the public and will be held on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 6:30 PM. For more information, contact Griffin Free Public Library at 603.483.5374 or

This program is made possible thanks to a grant from New Hampshire Humanities and support from the Friends of Griffin Free Public Library.
