September Programs

One Read Mini Memoir Writing Contest
Regional

In this year’s One READ selection, George Hodgman tells the story of returning to his hometown to take care of his aging mother and shares memories, events and conversations that formed the man he now is. Taking inspiration from “Bettyville,” we invite you to write a personal essay of 250 words or less – a mini memoir – that recalls a pivotal moment, event or interaction that significantly shaped your personality, crystallized your worldview or otherwise echoed through the years of your life. The memory you choose may be a monumental moment – like the birth of a child or loss of a loved one – or seemingly small, but it should be a moment that stands for something important and from which you learned something about yourself. Winning entries and honorable mentions will be published online and the winners will receive book store gift cards. Participants must be age 16 or older and residents of Boone or Callaway Counties. Entries may be submitted online at oneread.dbrl.org or at any library or bookmobile. Full details available online. Entries are due by September 26. 16 and older
