How They Did It: High-Stakes Memoir

April 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In the latest “How They Did It” conversation co-presented by Litquake and LitCamp, we’ll hear from four intrepid authors of recent memoirs, all of whom took the heroic step of committing their fascinating stories to the page. Eddie Ahn (Advocate)Sylvia Brownrigg (The Whole Staggering Mystery)Margaret Juhae Lee (Starry Field), and Carvell Wallace (Another Word for Love) bravely unfurl stories of family, memory, ambition, healing, and love. Our moderator is Rachel Howard, author of the memoir The Lost Night. What did they risk on the page? What, if anything, do they regret? And how can they stir other would-be memoirists to take up the mantel of bravery and write their stories, no matter the stakes?
We’ll gather at the Page Street Co-Working space in San Francisco, where in addition to the conversation, we’ll enjoy time for casual networking. We’ll be pouring Prosecco, wine, and fancy nonalcoholic drinks. Proceeds from ticket sales will support both LitCamp and Litquake.​
