YOUR STORY IS YOUR SUPERPOWER: A Memoir Workshop with Author and Award-Winning Screenwriter L.L. Kirchner @ Book + Bottle!

March 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm



Everyone has a story to tell. Here at Book + Bottle, one of our priorities is telling stories that mean the most to us: How our favorite books changed our lives, the history behind a great bottle of wine, the story of how our shop came to be. And we want to help YOU tell the story that makes you tick. We’re bringing in an expert to bring your unique story to life. Maybe you have a story you’ve been dying to tell. Maybe you aren’t quite sure what your story is yet. Either way, this workshop is for you.

Memoir is a craft of transcending your personal lens into a universal message. In this session with L.L. Kirchner, you’ll explore memoir in a way that will help you find your story’s beginning, middle, and end. Not only that, but you’ll be given techniques that turn great ideas into fabulous full-length books. Sometimes this can feel daunting, which is why memoir is a difficult genre. But L.L. Kirchner knows how to make it fun! Be prepared for writing exercises and group discussion in a safe and supportive environment.
