Canceled: The Life You Save: How to Keep a Journal You Won’t Throw Away

Phyllis Theroux
This program has been canceled due to a crisis in the author's family. We hope to reschedule the program at a future date.

Essayist Phyllis Theroux has long captivated readers with her pitch-perfect rendering of the inner lives of American women. Her latest work, The Journal Keeper: A Memoir, covers six years of her anything but uneventful life and demonstrates how journaling can serve as a cathartic and rewarding avocation. Theroux calls it her daily "light box."

Theroux is hosting a seminar, social hour, and talk and book signing at the Central Library on Sunday, January 23, 2011, in the Arrington Auditorium . Schedule as follows:

2:00-3:00 p.m.—Journaling seminar
3:00-4:00 p.m.—Social hour
4:00-5:00 p.m.—Talk and book signing

Free to all, but registration required for the seminar as space is limited. Call 226-3670 or e-mail hm@bham.lib.al.us. No previous journaling experience required.

Visit The Journal Keeper website (http://journal-keeper.com/) for more information about the author and her book.
