Panel Discussion

What happens when a novelist writes a memoir? Some of the rules change: no more making everything up. But crafting a memoir requires many of the same skills used in writing fiction. A memoir is filled with characters that need to be developed—even if one of those characters is you. Real-life events still need to be shaped into an arc. This panel, comprised of fiction writers who have written memoirs, will discuss ways to use the techniques of fiction writing to bring a memoir to life. Dani will join moderator Joanna Rakoff with Tova Mirvis, Marie Mutsuki Mockett, and Christa Parravani in discussion.
