Writing a Legacy Letter Workshop: Sharing Your Values with Loved Ones, with Jay Sherwin

Saturday, January 6 -- 10:00 am - 11:30 am

A legacy letter (also called an “ethical will”) is a written document that allows you to share your life lessons, express your values and transmit these ideas to future generations. A legacy letter is not a formal legal document or a full-length memoir; it’s a brief personal statement, typically just a few pages. Writing one is a rewarding experience that creates an enduring gift for your family, friends and loved ones. This workshop is designed to introduce the concept of legacy letters and to help you craft your own legacy letter. It includes discussion and a few brief writing exercises. Our presenter, Jay Sherwin, will offer advice to help you complete your legacy letter, share it with loved ones and preserve it for future generations. This program will take place in person at the library. If you plan on attending, please register for this program below so that we can send you a reminder on the day of the event. All are welcome!
