Lynda Barry Shares Recipes for Writing and Remembering

As described in her latest book, What It Is, artist and writer Lynda Barry has developed a creative and powerful technique to help people recall and capture their personal memories. Recently, in an ongoing effort to help preserve a rapidly changing culture, Barry has been showing residents of rural Wisconsin how to vividly recall their stories and collect them as part of a local history archive. She describes it as an opportunity to gather and write stories to add to the collective memory bank in the same way people once came together to have quilting bees. Lynda will talk about her work in this free, public presentation.
