LSC-North Harris hosts community reception for authors of “Work of Our Fathers”

Published on: September 21, 2009

Chances are that if you did these things, you’d get a wealth of stories such as the ones in the book “Work of Our Fathers.” The stories within this book are written from the childhood memories of the Older Women’s Legacy (OWLs) writing group, comprised of members of the Academy of Lifelong Learning program at Lone Star College-North Harris. Each story is as unique as the woman writing the narrative.

 

To honor their recent accomplishment, Lone Star College-North Harris will host an autographing party for these enchanting writers on Thursday, Oct. 8, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the college’s library gallery, located at 2700 W.W. Thorne Blvd. The books are free to the community and will be available at the autograph party while supplies last. Light refreshments will be served. 

 

The writing project was made possible through the generosity of a grant from the Lone Star College System Foundation. This allowed for the printing of the books and provided these talented writers with the opportunity to record their stories. LSC-North Harris will post the stories, via podcast, on its Web site. Anyone will be able to listen to the women tell their stories, in their own voice, from a computer or download to a MP-3 player—at no cost.

 

LSC-North Harris is located at 2700 W.W. Thorne Drive, one-half mile south of FM 1960 East, between Aldine-Westfield and Hardy Roads. Registration second start classes is now in progress. For more information about the college, call 281.618.5400 or visit: northharris.lonestar.edu.
