Memoir from Memorabilia
This is where Meghan comes in. By bringing together our photographs, letters, journals, recipes – or any other memorabilia that unlocks our memories, we will write stories to keep, to share, even to bind into a book. Meghan will lead us in writing exercises, give us some homework (!), and gently guide us through the memoir writing process.
Meghan Vigeant pursued radio documentary at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, and led a community history project on Swan’s Island, ME. After helping to recover the island’s history after a fire, Meghan saw how important personal history stories were to the islanders and the idea for her business took shape. Drawing on her diverse background in theater, radio journalism, museums and historical research, Meghan started Legacy Preserves, based in Rockland, to help make it easy for people to turn their stories into books for family and friends.
