Memoir workshop at Klindt’s
Oregon Book Award Winner Jay Ponteri will be at Klindt’s in The Dalles on Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for a memoir writing workshop. $40. Limited seating. “For me the joy of memory-based writing arises from recalling a memory I could not have imagined and did not plan on recalling before that present moment of composition. I’m talking about working from inadvertent memory. This kind of memory rises to the surface of consciousness without intention or design on my part. I don’t reach for memory—I let memory reach for me.”
