Phyllis Theroux's Journal Writing Seminar, November 4
Essayist Phyllis Theroux has long captivated readers with her pitch-perfect rendering of the inner lives of women. Her book, The Journal Keeper: A Memoir, covers six years of her anything but uneventful life and demonstrates how journal keeping can serve as a cathartic and rewarding avocation. Theroux calls it her daily "light box to save the things I think are the most beautiful, poignant or funny."
Theroux is hosting a seminar, talk and book signing at Central Library on Sunday, November 4, 2012, in the Arrington Auditorium. Schedule is as follows:
3:00-4:00 p.m.—Journal Writing Seminar. Registration required at http://phyllistheroux.eventbrite.com/.
4:00-5:00 p.m—Talk and book signing. Registration not required.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required for the seminar. Call 226-3670 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Visit The Journal Keeper website for more information about the author and her book.
