Maine writer, storyteller and personal historian, Eddie Adelman, will present Tell Your Life Story on Thursday, August 4 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.The presentation is designed to encourage audience members to document their own life stories before they’re lost forever. It features a lively mixture of readings, music, instruction, inspiration and humor. The preservation of life stories has become increasingly popular in recent years as baby boomers and seniors seek to pass along personal stories to their children, grandchildren and future generations. Adelman will offer easy to understand tips and instruction on memoir writing and oral histories. Woven in with the instruction are spoken excerpts from famous memoirs, as well as emotional songs that will underscore the value of passing along precious memories.
