Senior Memoir-Writing Class lists schedule

Posted 12/6/2012

Life Stories Nevada, a memoir-writing class, has published its spring schedule. Five, month-long classes will be offered January through May at locations throughout the Las Vegas Valley.

Life Stories Nevada is a program of the Clark County Cooperative Extension that helps older adults record their life stories for themselves and future generations.

In the four weekly classes, instructors aid would-be memoirists sort through their memories and organize how they want to tell their story.

Research has illustrated the importance of personal narratives to improve memory and promote self-esteem, which can lead to extended independence and more successful aging. The program aims to increase residents’ well-being by validating their life stories through both the process of writing them down and sharing them in a supportive setting.

Details of the spring classes are available on the project’s website, by clicking on the Find a Class link. To register, or for more information, email or call Jean Norman at 702-940-5423.
