Writing It Down

Hella Buchheim will discuss her book Remembering: Life Story Triggers at Magers & Quinn Booksellers–Tuesday, November 3, at 7:30pm.

Minneapolis author and personal historian Hella Buchheim has helped people remember and record the stories of their lives for the last five years. Her new book Remembering: Life Story Triggers and Memory Essays is a step-by-step guide to help people write a life memoir or story.

Buchheim originally designed a monthly newsletter which included her own childhood memories to stimulate thoughts and writing opportunities for others. Those essays have now been compiled into this book. Each story and list of triggers helps elicit memories of events not thought of in years. The book includes reflective questions and practical tips to help guide the writer from conception to idea gathering to printing.
