Your Life, Your Family Stories Featuring Kesaya Noda
Tuesday, April 28, 2015, 7 p.m.
Kesaya Noda of Meriden, NH will speak about her experiences with interviewing and recording personal and family histories in order to preserve them. Ms. Noda is a published author whose past work includes privately published memoirs, a community history, a commissioned collection of personal stories, and ten years as a writer for James Wright, then president of Dartmouth College. She is a member of the Association of Personal Historians.
“When we die without saving and sharing our personal and family stories, a world dies with us. Your memories are far more important than you think. You are the keeper of a heritage. Describe what you have heard and learned, seen and treasured, and you give a gift beyond measure—an anchor and an angle of vision that can help your descendants better make their way from the past, through the present, into their own futures. Create and complete your memoir because your stories are needed. Do it because you have a gift only you can give.”
