Since both of these writers are also novelists, they will tell us when a writer opts for memoir instead of fiction, discuss the delicate nature of writing memoir, and share the stories that inspired their memoirs as well as describe their writing process to us.  Following the discussion there will be ample time for questions from the audience, a reception, and a book signing.
