Learning to write life stories

If you’ve ever wanted to write your life story, here’s the chance to learn how. A free, four-session memoir-writing workshop is offered by the Sippican Historical Society and Elizabeth Taber Library on Sept. 11, 18, and 25, and Oct. 2, from 3 to 5 p.m., led by Judy Rosbe of Marion, author and historian. The historical society is donating copies of “Legacy: A Step-by-Step Guide to Writing Personal History” by Linda Spence for use by program participants. The library has copies of Roger Angell’s “Let Me Finish” that can be used for reference as well, Rosbe said. The workshop is open to 15 people, and will be held at the Taber library, 8 Spring St. To register or obtain more information, call the library at 508-748-1252.
