Saturday, January 15th - Writing Workshop, The Conversation That I Wish I Could Have

presented by Dr. Duane Roen, ASU Professor at 2:00 p.m.

The "Conversation That I Wish I Could Have" is an excellent start to begin or expand on your family's history. There are moments in our lives when we wish that we could have a conversation with an ancestor who is no longer alive. In this workshop, we will write questions that we would like to have with an ancestor (so please bring paper and pen or a laptop). Some of us may even take the next step and invent a dialog with that person. For example, it could be a conversation with an ancestor who immigrated to the United States in the 1800s. This is an excellent opportunity to learn writing tips from ASU Professor, Dr. Duane Roen. He will be offering a variety of writing workshops throughout the year for Community Center Members. FREE for Community Center Members or a $5.00 fee for non-members.
