Feb. 21 to March 28, 2017 from 1:30 - 3 pm
Each person's life is like a house with many rooms. Join author Erin Hart from the History Theatre for this fun and accessible six-session writing workshop that will help you discover some keys to those many rooms. Using photographs, sounds, artifacts, taste, scents, and textures, we will explore significant chapters in your personal or family history, and with the tools of writing we will bring your memories to vivid life on the page. Absolutely no experience necessary and everyone is welcome!
6 Class Sessions beginning on Feb. 21, 21 at the theater.
