Writing Your Story: A Memoir and Creative Nonfiction Workshop: A Neighbors Together Program

Have a story or experience from your life that you would like to write, but don’t know where to begin? Are you looking to document your family’s migration to the U.S., whether it was in the distant or more recent past? Join College of DuPage Associate Professor Trina Sotirakopulos to discuss storytelling methods and ways to make your experience come alive on the page. A writing workshop is included in this event.

Six public libraries (Addison, Indian Prairie, Itasca, Naperville, Westmont, and Wheaton) are doing a "one community, two book" program series called Neighbors Together in which each library is going to do a book discussion on a fiction title, The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez and/or a nonfiction title, Conditional Citizens by Laila Lalami. We are doing this program series to promote Literacy DuPage, a local organization that teaches English, and to highlight the diversity of DuPage County. We are scheduling additional immigration-themed events with the help of speakers from the College of DuPage. Members of all libraries are welcome to participate in any of the programs or book discussions.
