One Read Mini Memoir Writing Contest
Regional

In this year’s One Read selection, George Hodgman tells the story of returning to Paris, Missouri, after working for years in New York City to take care of his aging mother. Hodgman shares some of the memories, events and conversations that formed the man he is today. 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 County. Submit your entry September 1-26 at oneread.dbrl.org or at any library or bookmobile.

One Read Film: "Still Alice"
Fulton, William Woods University Library Auditorium

Dr. Greg Smith, associate professor of English, and William Woods University’s Film Club present the film “Still Alice.” Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a renowned linguistics professor at Columbia University. When words begin to escape her and she starts becoming lost on her daily jogs, Alice must come face-to-face with a devastating diagnosis: early-onset Alzheimer's disease. As the once-vibrant woman struggles to hang on to her sense of self for as long as possible, Alice's three grown children must watch helplessly as their mother disappears more and more with each passing day. A discussion will follow. (Rated PG-13)
