If you’ve ever thought about chronicling the story of your own life or that of a loved one, join Jane Deau in her presentation and workshop “My Life’s Journey” at 1 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 20 in T.B. Scott Free Library’s Community Room.
The program is free of charge, and all materials will be provided.
Deau, director at the Merrill Area Community Enrichment Center and a life coach, has marveled from her youth at stories told, first by her grandparents and great-grandparents, then by the many senior citizens with whom she’s worked over her career.
Shortly before undergoing heart surgery in 2005, Deau completed a “story book” of her life’s journey. The joy that her family and loved ones expressed upon reading her book inspired Deau to show others how to record their memories, stories, and experiences for others to enjoy and appreciate.
Everyone has stories of their own life’s journey worth sharing.
Growing up, a first kiss, your wedding day, a first home, and raising a family are all starting points for sharing the faith, humor and wisdom in your treasured memories with others.
Deau’s workshop will explore the process of recording written memories through journaling, images through video recording, and the spoken word through audio recording.
Refreshments will be provided, compliments of First Street Coffee Station, The Checkered Churn, and Half-Baked Bakery.
This program is part of the library’s Words Worth Hearing series. To learn more, go to the library’s web site at www.tbscottlibrary.org or call the library at 715-536-7191.
