Why do we remember what we remember? How do we remember our stories? Using examples from her own and others' work, Ann Elizabeth Carson, author (Laundry Lines, 2015), poet and artist, invites participants to explore with her the many ways memoir is expressed in word, images, music and dance. As we discover the moments that shaped our lives we learn more about ourselves. Hosted by  East End Writers' Group founder Sharon Crawford. All welcome. No  charge.

The workshop will be followed by a short break and a writing critique meeting at 8.30 p.m. of the East End Writers' Group which goes to 9.45 p.m. For information please call the library at 416-396-3975
