Opening the Memory Chest: How to Research and Write Your Family Story. An online webinar with Sally Ito and Linda Kawamoto Reid brought to you by Historic Joy Kogawa House & Nikkei National Museum.
Sally Ito writes: “I realize now that contracting the Spanish flu really changed my grandfather’s focus from sports to the literary when he was a teenager. The passage from his memoir reproduced here recounts his days in junior high school before and after he contracted the deadly flu. It may interest readers today who are grappling with the ways in which the current pandemic is affecting their lives and their education, in particular.”
How do you place yourself in your writing? Do you see yourself an authority? A participant? An outsider?
