Deborah Tainsh Teaches Memoir Writing Class, Thursdays in March 2018, Panama City Beach Public Library
March 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Deborah Tainsh, author of Heart of a Hawk: One Family’s Sacrifice & Journey Toward Healing is leading a series of classes on memoir writing at the Panama City Beach Public Library. The continuing sessions take place Thursdays, March 1, 8, 15, and 22, 2018 from 1 to 3 PM at the library on 12500 Hutchison Blvd., Panama City Beach, Florida.
“I teach the difference between an autobiography and a memoir,” says Deborah. “We’ll discuss theme definition, summary, musing, scene, dialogue … and what I call the ‘tool box’ for writing well and bringing readers into the story.”
Heart of a Hawk is a memoir of Deborah’s experiences after her son Patrick was killed in combat in 2004. She compiled stories from other Gold Star parents in another book Surviving the Folded Flag: Parents of War Share Stories of Coping, Courage, and Faith.
Registration is required for the free multi-session class. For more information and to register, call the library at (850) 233-5055.
