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 life stories with family and friends. Light refreshments will be served. The reading is free and open to the public.

The Inprint Senior Memoir Workshops at the Jewish Community Center have been running since 1996. Participants meet on a weekly basis during the fall and spring. Excerpts of the work produced during the 2015 – 2017 workshops are going to be collected in the anthology Memories to Memoir, which will be highlighted at the celebratory reading. Henk Rossouw—a Houston writer, an Inprint Fellow, and a graduate of the University of Houston Creative Writing Program—has been leading the workshop.

Special thanks to Bobbi & Vic Samuels and Robin Angly & Miles Smith for underwriting the workshop. 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.
