Please join the Whatcom Genealogical Society on Monday, March 14th, at 2pm at the Ferndale Pioneer Pavilion, 2207 Cherry St., Ferndale, WA when our guest speaker will be award-winning local author, Susan E. Greisen. Susan will be discussing the process she used to create her recent memoir, In Search of Pink Flamingos: A Woman’s Quest For Forgiveness and Unconditional Love. The book begins with 8 year old Susan living on a remote farm in Nebraska, then takes you on a vivid journey through Africa and ends with 63 year old Susan back in the U.S.
Susan will share with you her writing process and how she collected and recalled the detailed scenes written in her book. She will share helpful tips on how you can create a powerful story. Copies of her book will be available for purchase at the meeting.
Susan was a Peace Corps volunteer in Liberia and Tonga, and has journeyed to over forty countries on six continents. She is a published poet, author and photographer. Her stories and poems can be found in seven anthologies and two of her photographs were selected by the BBC online news. Learn more at susangreisen.com.
