We have stories for everyone: about love and war, art and the environment, thrilling near death experiences and faith, life journeys, struggles and triumphs that span nearly a century. Special thanks to Nanette Littlestone and Words of Passion! As the Reverend Martha Sterne says about the craft of memoir writing in her introduction, "Believe me. You are the keeper of treasures." All proceeds from the sales of this book are donated to important Outreach for those in need through our beloved Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church where we meet weekly to gather around the coffee pot and share the words.
Instructors, Carolyn Fore, PhD, and Sally Parsonson, PhD, and members, Tony Clarke, Janet Wilson, Jeannie Longley, Beverly Baker, Stefan Fatzinger and Christy Knight welcome you into our world of words.
