HerStories Memoir Challenge

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on January 7, 2009

I’m always encouraged by the women in Story Circle Network to continue writing, especially life story writing. I started a Memori two years ago and have only completed about half of it. Then I started reading other people’s memoirs and finding that I have grown so much in my life from this experience. Now, a new challenge has arisen – to read 4 memoirs in 4 months and post a 4 sentence review on each one.herstorieschallenge Those of you who know me will appreciate how hard it is for me to limit myself to 4 sentences – even if I am talking about a leaf that fell on the ground. So my challenge will not be to read, learn and enjoy these memoirs – but to succinctly and briefly retell my experience within the book. How fun – a learning it will be! I haven’t completely determined which 4 books I will be reading, but here are a good 3 to start with [can I change later? I don’t know]

1. The Forester’s Log by Mary Stuever

2. Things I’ve Been Silent About by Azar Nafisi

3. Blue Cotton Gown by Patricia Harmon

4. Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
