Family History Writing Workshop

Hosted By: Temple Israel of Boston

Join award-winning author, photographer and audio producer Rachael Cerrotti for a 3-session course all about personal storytelling. The classes will be a combination of inspiration, conversation, and writing with a goal of participants leaving each session feeling like they have made progress in documenting a family story.

For those who like to write, we will write. For those who like to use photographs, pictures will be present. And for those who are interested in other multimedia approaches to telling stories, that will be found here too! Together we will explore all the different ways to document our personal histories and preserve memories for the next generation.

Dates: January 23, February 6, and February 20. The fee includes all sessions.
