LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Friends of the Larchmont Library will present a memoir writing workshop led by Bill Wertheim to commemorate the village’s 125th birthday in September.
“Larchmont: The Way We Were” is a six-week memoir writing class that begins on Sept. 10 and continues every Monday thereafter through Oct. 22 at Larchmont Library, 121 Larchmont Ave.
Wertheim’s workshop aims to recall, reflect and create each writer’s unique history in their own personal narrative.
“This is not to make writing ‘perfect,’” Wertheim said in a statement. “This workshop is for those who want to have fun putting down memories about an earlier time in your life -- both special and crucial moments, family celebrations, unique or perhaps along with observations you’ve made about this city.
“It’s writing about something significant to you, and maybe only you. Through writing, you’ll get a new perspective about yourself and the community you live in. You find out what’s been important to you -- and what still might be -- and meet other Workshop members who would share in that discovery.”
Wertheim owns a BA in English Literature from Columbia College and an MA from State University of New York in English Literature. The Mount Vernon resident played a role in building local school curriculum and has led poetry and writing workshops throughout Westchester County.
The workshop is open to the public, but reservations are required due to limited space. More information is available online by visiting friendsoflarchmontlibrary.org .
