TELLURIDE – Local mother and award-winning author Amy Irvine McHarg is offering a writing workshop called Mustering the Grace: How to Write the “Mom-oir” That Tells It Like It Is (or, How It Would Have Been – Had You Been Pushed One Hair’s Breadth Further). The free, three hour class for mothers, mothers-to-be, and daughters of all ages, takes place Wednesday, Aug. 24 at the Wilkinson Public Library.

The evening will be dedicated to the tall tales of motherhood, madness, and miracles. In the first hour, McHarg will read from Terra Firma, her forthcoming book about her own travels across the unsteady terrain of mothering (due out in 2012, by Counterpoint Press). She will also speak about the process of writing about the familial. 

The remaining two hours will provide participants with the opportunity to explore their own writing and the telling of their own stories on the topic
