Sue Miller and Doug Bauer on Memoir and Memoir Writing

October 19, 2021 7:00 PM — 8:00 PM


Novelists Sue Miller and Doug Bauer will read from and discuss their respective family memoirs, The Story of My Father and What Happens Next? Matters of Life and Death.  The author of ten best-selling novels, Sue Miller’s The Story of My Father, was heralded as a “beautiful, spare memoir about her relationship with her father during his illness and death from Alzheimer’s disease.”   Douglas Bauer is the author of three novels and numerous non-fiction essays and reviews.  In What Happens Next? he weaves together the stories of his own and his parents’ lives and the work, rewards, and regrets that defined them in what one reviewer described as “a literate, thoughtful memoir from the heartland.”

Advanced registration required.  This program will be held at the Churchill and Janet Franklin Lyceum and Livestreamed.
