SONS and daughters hoping to chronicle the turbulence and triumph of their mother's life can get counsel and support at writing workshops at North Vancouver libraries this September.
The workshops are part of About My Mother's Story: North Vancouver, a campaign intended to help record mother's stories with the ultimate aim of turning nine of those stories into plays at the Presentation House Theatre next year.
The goal of the workshops is to help fledgling writers and dutiful children put pen to paper to capture the drama of their matriarch's life.
The workshops are scheduled to be led by Marilyn Norry, a writer and actress with a diverse body of work ranging from the troubled-teens TV series Neon Rider to the recent horror flick Jennifer's Body.
The Lynn Valley Main Library is slated to host workshops on Sept. 13 and 27.
Workshops are scheduled for the Capilano Branch Library Sept. 14 and 28.
Two more sessions are earmarked for the Parkgate Branch Library, Sept. 15 and 29.
All workshops are scheduled to take place between 6 and 8: 45 p.m.
Interested writers can register through each library.
