Join the Lakewood Pierce County Library, City of Lakewood and Humanities Washington for an evening of engaging ideas and community discussion. Event will be held in the Lakewood City Council Chambers.

Our life stories are a means for connection—a tender offering in a troubled era. Part reportage and part reflection, personal essays can reveal hidden truths about ourselves, our families, and our societies.

In this interactive and generative writing workshop, Kristen Millares Young will help participants tell their own stories. Each hourlong session will begin with a one-page reading to inspire group discussion, followed by timed prompts that guide individual writing sessions. By weaving together community narratives, we can craft a vision for our future that includes hope and the capacity for unexpected change.
