The Unforgettable Christmas
© Copyright 2017 by Carol Rotta
My husband of 53 years and I moved to a senior retirement community in Prescott, Arizona, almost three years ago. One of the activities offered was a memoir writing class. I tried it out—and thoroughly enjoyed it and began writing essays for my family. I was encouraged by the facilitator to join a more advanced workshop group whose members and leader offered a deeper learning experience. At 88 years old (young?) I’ve found a new hobby I greatly enjoy among others who enjoy what I have written. Carol is the author of the book Where the Williwaws Blow, a memoir of her life on a homestead in Alaska, in the early 1950’s. Several of her biographical essays are published in recent editions of Best Short Stories, A Collection by Arizona Writers. She’s a member of the Professional Writers of Prescott.
