Queens Library-Jackson Heights
July 29, 2016 / 3-5PM
When you think of home, where do you arrive? Do you have untold stories hidden in your photo albums? Do you have stories that your family tells over and over again? What are the stories that only you can tell? You haven’t found them yet?
Join KathaSatha and Queens Memory Project for a storytelling workshop* where you will write and share personal stories that may explore ideas of home and migrations. Participants are encouraged to bring 2-3 personal and family photos that may help in telling their stories. Facilitator, Muna Gurung, will lead the workshop with a series of writing exercises that involve images and words. No participant will be turned away for not possessing photos. No prior writing experience required.
* The session will be led in English. At the consent of the writer, stories from the workshop will be published on Queens Memory Project and KathaSatha web platforms. Registration is required. To register, you may do so on your own, see a librarian, or contact Yingwen Huang at 718-990-8532 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
