Author Karen Lauritzen speaks about memoir writing

Brevard author Karen Lauritzen will speak on, “From Journaling to Writing a Memoir, How I Did It,” in the second floor Conference Room of the Transylvania County Public Library, Thursday, April 21, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. following a short business meeting of the Brevard Authors Guild. She will discuss the process she used to write her memoir, “Nothing Vanishes, Memoir of a Life Transformed.”

She will focus on the use of centered writing process, a writing style she used to complete the first draft of her book. Following her presentation she will answer questions from the audience. The community is invited to this free program.

Her book, written and set in Transylvania County, describes how, after losing five family members in 10 years and creating a family cemetery on her property in Brevard, her life was radically altered.

On Saturday, April 23, at 1 p.m. Lauritzen will be at Highland Books in Brevard for a reading and book signing. In addition to reading selections from her memoir, she will read a passage from her upcoming novel, “Her Worldly Goods.”
