Fellow blogger Glenda Beall, who teaches in North Carolina, will be holding a writing class from April 5th to May 10th. The class, “Turn Your Memories into a Legacy,” taught through the Institute of Continuing Learning in Georgia, will take place on Zoom. I took a similar class from Glenda last fall and learned a lot. You can read one of the pieces I wrote for that class here.
Now, registration is open. If you’re interested in writing your life stories, this is the class for you. Click below to learn more and find out how to register.

Sixteen-year-old Natalie’s grandmother, suffering from dementia and confined to a wheelchair, lives in a nursing home and rarely recognizes Natalie. But one Halloween night, she tells her a shocking secret that only she and Natalie’s mother know. Natalie is the product of a one-night stand between her mother, who is a college English teacher, and another professor.
After some research, Natalie learns that people with dementia often have vivid memories of past events. Still not wanting to believe what her grandmother has told her, she finds her biological father online. The resemblance between them is undeniable. Not knowing what else to do, she shows his photo and website to her parents.
Natalie realizes she has some growing up to do. Scared and confused, she reaches out to her biological father, and they start corresponding.
Her younger sister, Sarah, senses their parents’ marital difficulties. At Thanksgiving, when she has an opportunity to see Santa Claus, she asks him to bring them together again. Can the jolly old elf grant her request?
