MEMOIR WORKSHOP with Nicole Hollander
Nicole Hollander will conduct memoir workshops…explorations of past lives…not the kind where you turn out to be the Queen of Sheba or Louis Sullivan, but the kind where you talk about memories elicited by photographs, clothing, favorite foods or bad meals and then write it down. Turning it into a book or screenplay later is up to you. She will also be signing her new book, Tales of Graceful Aging From the Planet Denial.
Hollander is the nationally syndicated creator of the Sylvia cartoons and author of several books.

LECTURE: The "New Normal"
Why are young girls looking older? And older women looking younger?
Writer Anne K. Ream explores how marketing, media and the
15 billion dollar beauty industry
have created a "new normal" that has troubling implications.
A percentage of the proceeds from the series will benefit The Voices and Faces Project.

DISCUSSION: What does money have to do with it?
