Discover two significant ways to Keep Spirits Alive by Giving the Gift of Story. Listen to award-winning author Lynn Cook Henriksen as she talks with Nashvilles Clearstory Radio host River Jordan about taking an intriguing journey with TellTale Souls through the guidebook, TellTale Souls Writing the Mother Memoir: How to Tap Memory and Write Your Story Capturing Character & Spirit. Its at not-be-missed happening December 16th at noon Central Standard Time in Nashville.
Tis the seasonGift #1: write a very special story about a significant person and wrap it up as a gift unlike anything they have ever received. Gift #2: give others (moms, wives, daughters, sons, sisters, grandparents) the guidebook that provides them with the know-how to actually write stories themselves.
During the Clearstory Radio interview, Henriksen poses the seminal question that she asks daughters and sons to answer in just a few pages, If you could tell just one small story that would capture your mother's character and keep her spirit alive for future generations, what would it be? The Mother Memoir is special kind of memoir with a distinct and refreshing difference, one that adds new twists inviting readers and writers into a spirited and soulful world. Tapping memory and learning to write with honesty about intimate, often trying, relationships is the most valuable form of writing, as well as a profound way to understand ones first connection with the world. Henriksen reveals how the book takes readers on a journey through emotional terrain to access the deepest spiritual truths of intimate relationships while learning to write short, true stories (bio-vignettes, a term she coined). The book is a soulful gift to writers and to would-be writers, because the significance of Keeping Spirits Alive through writing the Mother Memoir has the power to move people and change awareness.
