Women Writing Their Lives
A conversation with three memoir writers

Join three award-winning memoir writers as they read from their new books and talk about their personal writing journeys.

They will open the group to a lively discussion about memoir writing and answer questions about their books.

Linda Joy Myers
Founder and President of the National Association of Memoir Writers
Author of Don’t Call Me Mother ($16.95)

Accompany Linda Joy Myers as she uncovers family secrets, finds solace in music, and begins her healing journey. Learn how she transcends the prison of childhood to discover light in the darkness of strife, abuse, and undiagnosed mental illness. Originally published in 2005, this revised edition includes a new introduction and afterword, with new insights about memoir writing.

Judith Newton
Author of Tasting Home: Coming of Age in the Kitchen ($16.95)

In this food memoir, Judith Newton shares the unforgettable story of a life on the front lines of activism and in the kitchen. Having discovered during a difficult childhood that food and cooking were sources of comfort and emotional sustenance, in the decades to come, through her marriage to a gay man, her discovery of feminism, her life in a commune, and her career in a university, she learned how deeply food is tied to identity, love, community, and political engagement.

Judy L. Mandel
Author of Replacement Child: A Memoir ($16.00)

Judy Mandel is the replacement child for her sister who was killed in a tragic accident. It would be years before she would understand how the event, that happened before she was born, shaped her life. In this powerful story of love and lies, hope and forgiveness, Mandel discovers the truth that changes her life forever and forces her to confront the complex layers of her relationships with her father, mother, and sister. When she has her own child, her epiphany comes full circle.
