Book pages forming a heart

Sure! Everybody has a story! And nobody can tell yours quite the way you can, with your own accent, your own humor, your own special touch. If you are 18 to 80, join us at Mountain View Library on the last Friday of each month and meet memoirist Lynne Farr. Find out how to explore and share your story, just for family and friends, or for a wider audience. Either way, we will have fun!  Space is limited to 8 participants with 2 places open.

Please RSVP at (808) 968-2322 to reserve your place.
