Many of us are blessed to have in our lives ordinary women who never made headlines, won prizes, or had movies made about them. They are our mothers, grandmothers, teachers, aunts, friends. They endured sorrow and hardship; they may have bent under the burdens they carried, but they didn’t lay the burdens down. Best of all, they passed on their gifts of grace, faith and beauty. As Maya Angelou says, “They made our world go round.” In this writing workshop, we will tell the mostly untold stories of these extraordinary women and find ways to share them.
Dates: Saturdays, October 2, 9, 16
