Authors to tell the story behind the story

AUBURN — Three authors will tell the story behind the story, sharing the challenges and rewards of telling a personal story, at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Woman’s Literary Union, 19 Elm St. Light refreshments will be provided for the reading and author talk, which is free and open to the public.

Poet Cheryl Wilder will tell about the night she made a split-second decision with tragic results, and why she has woven that story into her first full-length book. Short story writer Claire Guyton reveals that she’s been writing about her pathological-liar mother, over and over again, in coded ways that rarely involve mother-daughter relationships. Memoirist Suzanne Farrell Smith chose to write about the loss of her father when she was 6.
