a memoir-writing book for my sister’s birthday
MY SISTER, MARION, CALLS IT “OUR GREAT EXPERIMENT.” Big sister Margaret (that’s me) calls it “Why not, and can-do.” It’s the release today (on the occasion of Marion’s “29th” birthday) of baby sister’s fourth book by none other than Margaret-turned-publisher. Happy birthday, Marion. I think that’s the most unusual gift I ever got you. :) It’s also a must-have for anyone doing memoir-style writing–whether in print or on a blog–since that’s what Marion’s been teaching to sold-out classes for 13 years. Her tips helped me finish my own memoir, due out next February, which is how I got the idea to publish them. Get the details (and the book) by the red-headed Roach sister and birthday girl. It’s amazing what you can whip up at your kitchen table these days!
