Memorable Memoirs: Take Two

Reading and Discussion

Memoirs come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: They are not autobiographies. Rather than a straight chronology of the author’s life, memoirs hone in on a specific feature of that life. The following memoirs use both traditional and unconventional formats to do just that.

Books in this Series

  • Russell Baker, Growing Up
  • Eudora Welty, One Writer’s Beginnings
  • Ruth Picardie, Before I Say Goodbye
  • Henry Adams, The Education of Henry Adams
  • Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
