The Life You Save: How to Keep a Journal You Won’t Throw Away Featuring Author Phyllis Theroux

Essayist Phyllis Theroux has long captivated readers with her pitch-perfect rendering of the inner lives of  women. Her book, The Journal Keeper, A Memoir, covers six years of her anything but uneventful life and demonstrates how journal keeping can serve as a cathartic and rewarding avocation. Theroux calls it her daily "light box to save the things I think are the most beautiful, poignant or funny.."

Theroux is hosting a seminar, talk and book signing at BPL on Sunday, November 4, 2012 in the Arrington Auditorium . Schedule is as follows:

3:00-4:00 p.m.—Journal Writing Seminar. Registration required,
4:00-5:00 p.m.--Talk and book signing. Registration not required.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required for the seminar.
Call 226-3670 or e-mail for information.
