The Art of Journaling

Essayist Phyllis Theroux has long captivated readers with her pitch-perfect rendering of the inner lives of American women. Her latest work, The Journal Keeper, A Memoir, covers six years of her anything but uneventful life and demonstrates how journaling can serve as a cathartic and rewarding avocation. Theroux calls it her daily "light box."

Theroux is hosting a seminar, social hour, and talk and book signing at the BPL on Sunday, January 23, 2011 in the Arrington Auditorium . Schedule as follows:
2:00-3:00 p.m.--Journaling seminar
3:00-4:00 p.m.--Social hour
4:00-5:00 p.m.--Talk and book signing
Free to all, but registration required for the seminar as space is limited. Call 226-3670 or e-mail
Talk and book signing free and open to all. No previous journaling experience required.
Visit The Journal Keeper website ( for more information about the author and her book.
