Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Memoir

November 29, 2011

I love memoir. I love reading it, because 9 times out of 10 it’s a story of someone working to redeem their purpose. I love writing it, because it is one way in which I redeem my purpose.

Last month, Shirley Showalter of 100memoirs.com invited me to write a guest post, a review of singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell’s memoir, Chinaberry Sidewalks. You can read the review here, and I encourage you to poke around Shirley’s blog. If you like memoir, you’ll love her site. If you aren’t familiar with memoir, it’s a great place to learn more about the genre.

My favorite memoirist, Mary Karr, posted this video yesterday on her facebook page. It’s all about philanthropy (love of humanity), which is what this season is all about. If you are feeling hungover from Black Friday and/or cyber Monday, this could be the cure you’re looking for. Best wishes for a blessed holiday season!
