Senior Memoir-writing Classes in April

Posted 3/8/2013

Life Stories Nevada, a memoir-writing class, will be offered each Monday beginning April 8 at Temple Beth Sholom (10700 Havenwood Lane, LV 89135) from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Life Stories Nevada is a program of 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 upcoming 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.
