Everyone has a story. At least one, Betty Krasne says, that they want to tell. So she helps people write them. Eleven of her students told their story out loud at the Kent Memorial Library on Dec. 11 — acts of courage, sometimes, of wit, and of gratitude.
Writing Your Life, the class is called. And the idea drew 10 women and one man to Krasne’s latest class on memoir writing. For eight weeks she assigned exercises and prompted members to help each other be clear, honest and engaging.
