It’s easy to see why Noah St. John has been showing up all over the internet lately. His story, told with beauty, passion, humor and honesty is the story of Family, whatever its shape or size. It’s about staying together or breaking apart, and that resonates…
Reading other people’s stories offers a glimpse into their world. You can see what life was like a hundred years ago and in another country. And you can marvel at how someone so different can have the same fears and hopes as your own.
Check out this great list of memoirs on the CLP Teensburgh Website, tune in to hear amazing storytellers entertain or stop by your library and grab one of these great memoirs off the shelf.
One of the most freeing things anyone can do is tell their story in their own words. Life stories have been around for as long as there have been people to tell them. Telling your story as poetry, memoir or disguised as fiction gives you a reason to focus on the events that changed your life and can be incredibly liberating. You can write your story down in the form of a diary or journal meant just for you, or tell it to the world. If getting your story out there sounds like an exciting opportunity check out Teen Ink for a really cool venue to publish your work. Either way writing down your experience is a great way to reflect and remember.
