The Motherhood Affidavits-How to Tell Your Own Story
October 13, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
An affidavit is “a sworn statement of fact voluntarily made by an affiant under oath.” To this end, our life stories, written and/or spoken, are affidavits culled from everyday experience. In writing memoir, we witness and record what happens to us. Writing memoir is the art of blending past selves with the present self to create meaning. Please join Laura Jean Baker, author of The Motherhood Affidavits, to learn how her braided memoir might serve as a template for your own life story.
