Lovers of literature — and those interested in memoir as a genre — are invited to the 7 p.m. event sponsored by the local North Coast Writers group.
Molly Hollenbach, Diana Somerville and Mary-Alice Boulter will discuss the challenges of memoir-writing and read from their own works inspired by varied settings: New Mexico, Australia and Japan.
Hollenbach, a Sequim writer, will focus on her 2004 memoir, Lost and Found: My Life in a Group Marriage Commune, published by University of New Mexico Press.
Somerville will read from Inside Out Down Under: Stories from a Spiritual Sabbatical, a book that took shape while the Port Angeles resident studied and traveled across Australia.
And Boulter, also of Port Angeles, will share chapters from her memoir covering a range of experiences, including her work as a stewardess on the Freedom Birds, bringing service members back from the Vietnam War.
