Are you thinking about writing your memoirs?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, I want to invite you to join me and thousands of other folks at the 7th Annual Tucson Festival of Books on March 14th and 15th on the University of Arizona campus in sunny, warm Tucson, AZ.

If you’re interested in memoir writing, make a note to attend my free workshop on Memoir Writing at the Festival at 2:30 on Saturday, March 14th in Room 137 of the Integrated Learning Center. (Please check the official schedule to confirm the room – it may change).

If you’re planning to come for the weekend, try to get tickets to the Friday night concert of The Rock Bottom Remainders – best-selling authors Amy Tan, Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Scott Turow, Ridley Pearson, Greg Iles, Alan Zweibel and Sam Barry – who are reuniting for this special benefit concert. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for book lovers that also supports vital literacy programs in Southern Arizona. Enjoy the performance antics of these New York Times best-selling authors, mingle with other Festival authors, enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks, and take home a limited edition t-shirt created just for this event!

Spend Saturday and Sunday meeting authors, attending workshops, and indulging in the pure joy of hanging out with legions of other book lovers. Parking is easy…. Admission to the TFoB is free… Get books autographed by your favorite authors… Learn from experts at free workshops… Enjoy some warmth and sunshine!

Here’s a link to the Schedule of Events – all the author appearances and workshops so you can plan your weekend Tucson Festival of Books Event Schedule.

For those of you who want to write your memoirs, this workshop will be a perfect place to start. We’ll cover topics like

  • how to get started
  • how to keep going until you’re done,
  • how to make your writing shine, and
  • what to do with your memoir when you’re finished writing.

If you come to my workshop, please be sure to say hello after the session!
