The Life You Save: How to Keep a Journal You Won’t Throw Away
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. No previous journaling experience required.
Visit The Journal Keeper website (http://journal-keeper.com/) for more information about the author and her book.
