Telling Your Stories: Master Writing Class with Sonja Livingston

Want to write your personal stories? Writing about your own life (and the people and places you know best) can be deeply satisfying, and can also provide a meaningful point of connection with other people—including those whose lives seem quite different on the surface. In this creative workshop, Sonja Livingston will lead you in a series of prompts to get you writing the stories only you can tell. This workshop is appropriate for writers of all levels.

Award-winning writer and Rochester native, Sonja Livingston, is making a special visit to Rochester and the Central Library on September 28th for a reading and signing of her newly published book, The Virgin of Prince Street. You are invited to attend her author event following the writing class at 2:00 pm in the Kusler-Cox Auditorium.

Sonja Livingston is the author of the award-winning Rochester memoir, Ghostbread, the essay collection, Queen of the Fall, which was selected for the Rochester Reads program, and Ladies of the Dreamland.. Her latest book is The Virgin Of Prince Street. Sonja is an associate professor of English at Virginia Commonwealth University and splits her time between Richmond and Rochester.

Free and open to the public. Space in the writing class is limited and registration is required.

Hosted by the Arts & Literature Division. For more information, please call 428-8380 or contact Carol Moldt at Carol.Moldt@libraryweb.org.
