In support of her upcoming book Supremely Tiny Acts: A Memoir of a Day (Mad Creek Books, Oct. 2021), a book-length memoir about a single day, please join us for a special writing workshop with author Sonya Huber!
In this one-session class, we'll discuss what it means to write the "mundane" of our daily lives, learning about the history of this sort of subject matter in nonfiction and fiction. We will then write together about what’s happened to us on the day that we gather for the class (no advanced preparation required) as a way to experiment with the overlooked details of our lives as rich sources of inspiration for writing.
This event is virtual and limited to 20 participants. To register, please click here.
(And make sure to check out Sonya in conversation LIVE at the library on October 13th for the launch of her new book! More details to follow!)
