Writing memoirs will be topic of Nov. 6 LRP session

The Tabor College Learning in Retirement Program will explore writing memoirs for the Nov. 6 session.

Denice Rhoades, Newton, will present “A Living Legacy: Passing on the Story.”

During the session, Rhoades will share personal stories from recent books. In addition, Learning in Retirement members Elfreda Fast, Art Flaming and Ella Wiebe will share about writing personal history.

Rhoades is a professional ghostwriter with a vision to help older adults put their personal stories to paper. She has been the writer for several books and is now engaged in older-adult memoir writing.

Rhoades uses a three-step system in her writing: interviewing and collecting information, putting stories and information into a rough draft and finishing the manuscript to be ready for publication.

Central Kansans who have never attended a Learning in Retirement program are encouraged to attend free of charge. Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door.

For more information, contact Connie Isaac, coordinator, at 947-5964.
