Local author to hold workshop at NADL
The Newaygo Area District Library is hosting a workshop on life storytelling presented by local author Janet Glaser, aka J.Q. Rose, on Saturday, July 10 at 10:30 a.m.
“I have presented workshops on writing life stories for years, I encourage everyone to record their stories for their family and friends. Helping people get started on telling their life stories is a privilege because every person has stories that are important and valuable to share,”
She decided to use the lessons learned from all the years of workshopping and penned her memoir, Arranging a Dream: A Memoir.
“I began my memoir for our daughters to tell them about moving from Central Illinois to Fremont because we had a dream of operating a greenhouse business. We purchased Fairview Floral on the west side of Fremont and opened as the ‘new owners’ on January 1, 1975. The story evolved into a book, so I decided to publish the memoir to inspire others and let them know dreams can come true.”
This class is supported in part by a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs Minigrant Program, administered by LowellArts. Please call the Library @ 231-652-6723 to Register or RSVP on the website @ https://newaygolibrary.org.
