SAGE Lecture to Focus on Personal Memoir Writing
Nancy Coco, director of the Penn State Lehigh Valley Writing Project, will serve as guest lecturer for the SAGE December session at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, December 5, at Penn State Lehigh Valley’s Corporate Learning Center in Bethlehem.
During the session, Coco will lead participants through a workshop that will allow them to capture some of their thoughts and memories and turn them into a personal poetic gift for their families.
"Memoir writing is about telling the stories of our lives through different styles of writing," says Coco. "The finished product of a memoir session can be a wonderful gift to both the writer and the writer's family."
