Memoir workshop tackles family political differences

Join Willamette Writers coast branch on Sunday, March 18, for a conversation with Jenny Forrester, author of “Wide River, Narrow Sky.” Forrester will look at how writers deal with a memoir when their families sit on the opposite sides of the political fence. The free workshop takes place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Newport Library. Forrester said, “It’s a fairly universal experience to disagree with family members sometimes. But what if those disagreements are more like epic gulfs of bafflement and horror? What if your family members are conservatives? What if they’re Republicans? What then? How do we show our more liberal/progressive/radical leanings without making ourselves out to be the good guys and the conservatives the bad guys?”
