Show and Tell Open Mic Memoir Event
August 12, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Davis Cemetery District and Arboretum (820 Pole Line Road, Davis) will host its first ever open-mic event modeled after your favorite elementary school activity “Show and Tell” on August 12th starting at 11:00 am.
Davis Cemetery District and Arboretum has a long history of celebrating the stories and history of the community. We have partnered with professional memoir writer Emma Fulenwider. Emma hosts Show and Tell events throughout the Sacramento area as a fun way to promote memoir writing in the community.
“A lot of people want to write their life experiences down, but they are intimidated by the writing process and they don’t know where to start. Show and Tell is a great starting point because there is no writing involved, people choose a special story from their life and tell it to others.”
Participants are encouraged to bring items of special personal significance and come prepared to show their treasure and tell the story behind it.
“This isn’t Antiques Road Show, don’t bring the oldest or most valuable thing in your home. Bring something that is special to you for a reason that only you know about.”
This event will coincide with our Davis Cemetery District history weekend. Which will include a self-guided tour made up of the personal histories of its residents and an art opening by ceramic artist Nicole Seisler who’s work features hand pressed ceramics that tell a story of her life and travels.
