Wednesday, December 10th, the participants of the Fall 2014 session of Document Your Life Story took part in the course’s first public reading. Pieces were prepared, chairs were set up and a table was laid with celebratory goodies. Members of the SMC and Lamorinda area filed in to hear engaging and meaningful stories from the personal lives of four very special women. I hardly believed that any of them were reading their own work for the first time. Each read with such poise and confidence, I was totally wowed. It has been an honor to get to know these writers and I will miss them greatly in the coming months.
Another section of Document Your Life Story will be offered Spring of 2015. The date of the first class is TBD, but will likely be sometime mid-February. Contact Lafayette Senior Services for more information on signing up for the course.
Cheers to wonderful semester!
