Course Description

Remember when Grandma made your favorite dessert, trusting you with the secret ingredient? …when Great Aunt Pearl told you about life on the farm, and Uncle Pete told all those corny jokes? Memories like these are treasures you’re entrusted with to pass on to the next generations. Chances are you have collections of family stories, recipes, photographs and other mementos that you want to do something with, but don’t know where to start. Learn how to transform them into compelling stories in this interactive class. Laura Ehrke will help you get started with questions and story prompts and review a variety of formats to share your legacy, such as creating a family cookbook, scrapbooking, blogging, writing a collection of vignettes or book, and more. A Harper College librarian will show you resources to research ancestry, historical documents, and more.
