Writer and published author Brian Hoover leads the class which will include free form writing exercises and an exploration of the nature of memoirs, and examining voice and perspective.

The History Center has sponsored a Bridgeport Memoir Writing Class since 2002. The class has continued to write about memories not only of Bridgeport, but about the stories that we find have linked our lives. We all have shared landscapes of memories, common experiences in daily life. Newcomers are welcome.
