Miami: Write your autobiography, Nov. 7

Ever thought about writing your autobiography? Wouldn't it be a great legacy for your future descendants?

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami thought this would be a good thing, so their next meeting - Sunday, November 7 - is devoted to just that topic with author Liz Coursen ("The Complete Biography Workbook."

The program begins at 10am, at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami.

Have you reached this stage? "I've been working on my autobiography but I'm stuck and need direction." Or even toying with the idea of writing one? Coursen will discuss how to organize and compose your autobiography. The Workbook received a recent rave review on C-Span's Book TV.

She will offer advice and guidance on how to leave a personal legacy for your children and grandchildren.

The focus of the program is to encourage people to record - on paper for their families and descendants - their first-person stories of struggle and sacrifice and delayed gratification covering WWII, the Depression, immigration, segregation, discrimination and success. Think about all the important stories that are lost every day. A question and answer session will follow.

The meeting is free. For direction and secure parking instructions, click here.
