For those who are drawn to memoirs or those who wish to write their own, join memoirist Ann McCloskey on Saturday, November 18 at 1 p.m. at the Rockingham Library. McCloskey will read from her book These Dreams of You and talk about the rewards and challenges in writing an honest and unflinching story laden with emotional content. McCloskey’s discussion of her memoir writing process will inform those who are interested in better understanding the genre and inspire those who may want to write their own stories.

This memoir has been called sad and devastating but also full of truth and love and grace. While McCloskey’s story offers an unvarnished account of her challenges in raising her extraordinary daughter, it also conveys the depth of love she felt for her. Interspersed throughout the narrative are several lyrical letters written by mother to daughter since the daughter’s death.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call (802) 463-4270, email programming@rockinghamlibrary.org or stop by the Rockingham Library at 65 Westminster St. in Bellows Falls.
