Event description

Description

Most people lead unremarkable, and little unremarked upon, lives. They are born, grow up, have children (or not), find work, perhaps grow old, and die. We can be sure that each of these life passages was filled with effort and feeling. Yet all that remains to the next generation is a scattered assortment of clues: the bare data of genealogy, the testimony of old photos, the uncertain evidence of family anecdotes. In this lively, conversational workshop, Candace Savage will explore techniques for telling rich, personal stories about long-departed people based on fragments of evidence. Drawn in part from what Candace learned while writing her latest book, Strangers in the House, this discussion will be of special importance to anyone interested in writing narrative history or in exploring their own family stories.

All masterclass sessions are 90 minutes in length. Space is limited. Festival Passholders must reserve your spot in advance at rsvp@litfestalberta.org.

$12 in advance, $15 at the door subject to availability.
