Monday, March 31, 2008Memoirs

Maybe you've read "Angela's Ashes" by Frank McCourt, or "Running with Scissors" by Augusten Burroughs or even the controversial "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey. All three are famous memoirs of non-famous people. The genre of the "nobody" memoir has exploded in the past few years and it seems everyone has a story to tell. Do you? Join us on Monday when we talk about the memoir – who is reading them, who is writing them and why are they so popular. Because this is a special Spring Membership Drive edition of the State of Affairs, we won't be taking calls this hour. To become a member of WFPL, call 814-6565.Listen to the ShowRelated Links:
