Write Your Life/Family History!


Dates: Ten consecutive Tuesdays, beginning March 8, 2016

Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Venue: AFHS Library, 712 - 16 Avenue NW (map)


Featured Speaker: Michele Buhler


We are very pleased to introduce our new Chinook editor, Michele Buhler, as our instructor. Michele is a former Social Worker who stumbled into helping people write their life stories when she “discovered” her mother-in-law’s fabulous stories and wrote them down. That was almost ten years and many books ago!



Cost: $150 for ten (10) sessions. AFHS members will receive a 20% discount ($120).

Details: Enroll early - 16 people maximum! Michele will help you generate ideas and create a collection of stories that you can share with your loved ones. You will listen to and encourage group members. Don't feel intimidated if you think you are not a writer - this is a memories class, not an English class, so "creative" spelling, grammar and puncutation are encouraged!
