Elder Literacy

One-on-one companionship and literacy mentoring with our personal history writing project “My Life Story.”

Working from the textbook Elderwriters: Celebrate Your Life! by Sue Barocas, a volunteer will work one-on-one with an elder living in the Midcoast area to create an original, short book that captures his or her special moments and memories.

The personalized “My Life Story” book created by the elder may include:
  • short stories
  • old letters
  • photos
  • favorite recipes
  • a family tree
  • personal reflections
  • favorite quotes
Read Together tutoring session

The Sessions
The personal history writing sessions are held once a week for a minimum of one hour at a convenient public location (local library, coffee shop, etc.) or in the common space of a senior living community. Upon completion, the “My Life Story” booklet is spiral bound and ready to be shared with family and friends.
