Keeping Memories & Writing Memoirs


As Thanksgiving approaches, tips and ideas for keeping family memories around for upcoming generations.  We'll also get tips on memoir writing and learn about the latest project from StoryCorp.

Guests:  Elizabeth Peavy, Portland-based writer, performer and educator. She was a guest lecturer of creative nonfiction at the University of Maine at Farmington and has taught her popular memoir workshop for the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance since the days of quill and parchment.
  Lisa Joyce, Portland Public Library outreach librarian
  Kate Duff, project director for The Great Thanksgiving Listen (David Isay's of "StoryCorps" latest project).

Jennifer walked into her college radio station as a 17-year-old freshman and never looked back. Even though she was terrified of the microphone back then — and spoke into it as little as possible — she loved the studio, the atmosphere and, most of all, the people who work in broadcasting. She was hooked. Decades later, she’s back behind the radio microphone hosting Maine Public Radio’s flagship talk program, Maine Calling. She’s not afraid of the mic anymore, but still loves the bright, eclectic people she gets to work with every day.
