|Capturing your Family History through Creative Writing
Presenter: Mary Lou Driedger, Writer's Guild of MB
Join us for a lively discussion with local writer MaryLou Driedger! MaryLou is a member of the Manitoba Writer's Guild and focuses on creative writing and historical fiction.
In 1907 MaryLou Driedger's grandfather Peter Schmidt was a young boy immigrating by train to Canada from the United States. Unfortunately, on the journey the boxcar he was traveling in with his family's horses, became uncoupled from the rest of the train. MaryLou's 2021 best-selling novel Lost on the Prairie is a fictional adventure story imagining what happened to her grandfather as he made his way across the mid-west attempting to reunite with his family. In her visual presentation MaryLou will explain the extensive research she did both in Canada and the United States to make the book authentic to time and place and how writing the novel helped her get to know her grandfather who died when she was just a young child. You can read more about the book at maryloudriedger.com.
MaryLou will have copies of her book available for $15.
