VB Writes...Nonfiction & Memoir

Sun, 10/06/2019 - 3:00pm
1200 11th St
Bellingham, WA 98225-7015

Meets 1st & 3rd Sundays, 3-5pm

We have eclectic tastes that range from biography, history, nature writing, and self-help, but tend to focus primarily on the memoir. Our process is to bring a printed copy of your piece for each member of the group to follow while you read aloud. The group critiques aloud and also writes notes on your print out, and returns the print outs to you for you to keep. Critiquing is honest and encouraging. We ask that new members attend at least two meetings before submitting their own works for critique.

In The Dreamer and the Doctor, Jack Nisbet turns his attention to American pioneers Dr. Carrie and John Leiberg, whose lives and passions helped shape our region in the turn of the twentieth century. Their adventures spilled out of the Northwest to touch issues of public health, government control, and personal freedom; what they accomplished emerged as touchstones of character and identity for an entire region.

The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Douglas Carlton Abrams

Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than 50 years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships—or, as they would say, because of them—they are two of the most joyful people on the planet.

We get to listen as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the Obstacles of Joy—from fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.
