Published Maine writer Eddie Adelman will offer his Tell Your Life Story workshop Wednesday, Aug. 14, at 6:30 p.m. in the Marine Room of Rockport Public Library, 1 Limerock St. Admission is free but seating is limited, so early arrival is suggested.

Adelman will lead attendees through a lively, informative and entertaining program that may inspire them to embark on the journey of a lifetime — writing their memoirs or audio-taping the special moments of their lives to be passed along to children, grandchildren and future generations.

The preservation of life stories has become increasingly popular in recent years as baby boomers and senior citizens seek to pass along personal stories. Adelman will offer easy to understand tips and instruction on memoir writing and oral histories. Woven in with the instruction are a lively mixture of readings, music, instruction, inspiration and humor.

In addition to being a personal historian, Adelman is an AP award-winning journalist, playwright and screenwriter who has written for the Portland Press Herald, MPBN Radio, Maine Times; and Bangor Metro and Maine Seniors magazines. He has appeared on the Bravo Network’s TV series “Situation: Comedy” for a sitcom pilot he wrote called “The Maine Dish.” His one-act play “Mansion on the Hill” was turned into a short film shown nationally at film festivals.
