This reading is free and open to the public and will take place in the Board Room of the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center Houston.

Join Inprint as we celebrate the stories of our elders. Senior citizens enrolled in the Inprint Senior Memoir Workshop at the Jewish Community Center will give readings from their work,  sharing their life stories with family and friends. Light refreshments will be served.

The Inprint Senior Memoir Workshops at the Jewish Community Center have been running since 1996. This past year, participants met on a weekly basis during the fall, spring, and summer. Excerpts of the work produced during the 2018 – 2019 workshops are going to be collected in an anthology which will be highlighted at the celebratory reading.

The workshops were taught by Inprint C. Glenn Cambor/MD Anderson Foundation Fellowship recipient Cait Weiss Orcutt, author of Valleyspeak and whose work has been published or is forthcoming in Boston ReviewChautauquaFIELDTupelo Quarterly & more.

These workshops are part of the Inprint Senior Memoir Workshop program which, for more than 20 years, has provided a professional writer to work with groups of senior citizens at different community centers throughout the city. Similar Inprint workshops are currently running at the Finnigan Park Community Center, Amazing Place, a day center for seniors with dementia, and BakerRipley.
