The public is invited to the September meeting of Maine Media Women, which will feature Caroline Janover giving a talk on memoir writing, Saturday, Sept. 10 at the Mobius Center, 319 Main St./Business Route 1. Coffee and networking will begin at 9:15 a.m., and the program will start at 10 a.m.

Everyone has foggy memories of things like  promise-not-to-tell secrets shared during teenage pajama parties or details of that crazy vacation in a Colorado ghost town when it snowed before Labor Day — wouldn’t it be nice to share some different tales at the next family reunion, to pass a written record on to grandchildren or to just remind one’s self of the good old days  Janover will share techniques for transferring those distant recollections into stories that can be preserved for posterity.

Janover has taught the very popular courses on memoir writing offered by Maine’s Coastal Senior College. Her background includes working in public and private schools with children with learning and attention issues, and she has written several books for children and young adults including “How Many Days Until Tomorrow” and “JOSH: A Boy with Dyslexia.”
