What I Forgot…And Why I Remembered: A Journey to Environmental Awareness and Activism Through Purposeful Memoir. Join Jennifer Browdy, Ph.D., as she shares scenes from her lyrical, hard-hitting memoir, which sets one American woman’s journey against the larger landscape of the past 50 years of political upheaval, global climate change, and the recovery of our primary connection to the Earth. Jennifer details her own years of being entranced, both personally and professionally, in patterns of denial and avoidance. Jennifer has also published a writer’s guide, The Elemental Journey of Purposeful Memoir: A Writer’s Companion. As part of this special event, she will lead a short exercise in the art and craft of purposeful memoir. This special presentation is a benefit for the Berkshire Environmental Action Team (B.E.A.T.) and its program, No Fracked Gas in Mass. Admission $10.
