Sharing Your Story: A Writing Workshop with Amy Ralston SeifeSharing Your Story: A Writing Workshop with Amy Ralston Seife
Monday, April 20, 3:30 - 5:00pm

Writing about your life is a way of coming to a fresh understanding of it at an age when you probably think you know yourself pretty well.Novelist Stephen King says, “I write to find out what I think.” In other words, until you set an experience down on paper, and determine the best words to describe it, you can’t fully appreciate or understand it.  We all have memories and experiences we’d like to share with family or friends – or perhaps simply record for ourselves. In this participatory one-hour session, you will start to transform your own unique memories into memoir. Previous writing experience is not required; the instructor will offer prompts to trigger memories and ideas. Arrive with your laptop or pen and pad – and leave with what might be the beginning of your autobiography! 

Amy Ralston Seife teaches creative writing classes and workshops, is a freelance writing coach and editor, and is the Managing Editor of The Westchester Review. A published short story writer, she has been twice nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She holds an MA in English Literature from Yale, and an MFA in fiction writing from Sarah Lawrence as well as an MBA from Columbia University. 

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served at 3:30 pm, the program begins at 4:00. Be sure to bring a pad and pencil or a laptop.

Where:  Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont. To reach Russell Hall, use the Forest Park Avenue door of the church near Wendt Avenue.

Crime Novelist, Andrea SchenkelCrime Novelist, Andrea Schenkel
Tuesday, May 12, 3:30 - 5:00 pm

We are please to present Andrea Maria Schenkel. Ms. Schenkel  is a literary crime novelist from Germany. Her 2006 book, Tannöd (Nautilus), took the literary world by storm, selling over one million copies. The  award-winning book has been published in more than 20 languages and, in the United States, under the title The Murder Farm (Quercus, 2014). In 2009, the work was released as a film. Her second book, Kalteis, also a  best-selling novel, will be published in the United States this year under the title Ice Cold.

Both books won Germany’s Deutsche Krimi Preis, which is annually awarded to the country’s best crime novel. Schenkel is the first author to win the prize in back-to-back years. In 2008, Tannöd also won Sweden’s Martin Beck Award, which is given to the best crime novel translated into Swedish.

Since the publication of these best-selling works, Schenkel has authored Bunker (2009, Nautilus), Finsterau (Hoffmann und Campe, 2012), and Täuscher (Hoffmann und Campe, 2013), and edited a volume of Christmas-themed crime stories, White Snow, Red Blood (Ullstein, 2010).

Recently, she has collaborated with SAX Allemande, an award-winning chamber trio for classical saxophone. The team created “Mendelssohn Lieder ohne Worte” (Songs without Words), a play that blends Schenkel’s words with the trio’s music.

Schenkel lives in Regensburg, Germany and in the New York metropolitan area
