Three authors will gather together to tell their personal stories and to discuss the art of writing memoir with Northshire event manager Rachel Person.

Rana Bitar's The Long Tale Of Tears And Smiles explores an immigrant oncologist's journey of triumphs and struggles, from growing up in Syria, to the tragic death of her brother, to her experiences as a young immigrant medical student and trainee in the USA. Walk through her anguish witnessing the civil war in Syria and its devastation; see her become a practitioner, watching the field of oncology evolves throughout the years.

Pressure is the unbelievable true story of Eric Canori, who buried $10 million worth of gold bars in the woods—and later used them to buy himself out of prison. Pressure is an epic tale of determination, resilience, and inner transformation. It displays Eric Canori’s quest for love and acceptance—through money, sex, and drugs. The book will inspire you to re-evaluate the way you live, as it showcases what is essential in life: our relationship to the natural world, to ourselves, and to each other.

Rod Correll's  Learning to Be a Leatherman started out as a coming-of-age story focused on a voyage the author took “across the pond”, when he was 17 years old. Arranged by his father, this trip was meant to teach him how to tan leather and, by design or inadvertently, how to spread his wings. Over the course of writing it, the author developed a clear, conversational voice. In the process, he also came to terms with his relationship with his father and the world of work his dad carved out for him. It’s a bittersweet yet ultimately uplifting memoir, full of warmth and love, for his father, the business his grandfather founded, and everyone in the writer’s family, most of all, his wife Chloe.
