Looking to try a book in a new-to-you genre? Or looking for an excuse to read a book off your Mt. To Be Read? Every month, we'll explore a different genre by reading a single book and sharing our thoughts with our partner. September's genre is memoirs. Whether you're new to the scene or just using this swap to read one you've had your eye on for a long time, this is the swap for you.
(Wikipedia) Memoir (from French: mÃ©moire: memoria, meaning memory or reminiscence), is a literary nonfiction genre. More specifically, it is a collection of memories that an individual writes about moments or events, both public or private that took place in the subject's life. The assertions made in the work are understood to be factual. While memoir has historically been defined as a subcategory of biography or autobiography since the late 20th century, the genre is differentiated in form, presenting a narrowed focus. A biography or autobiography tells the story of a life, while a memoir often tells a story from a life, such as touchstone events and turning points from the author's life.
Choose any memoir and read it! There are tons of online suggestion guides that might help. Please post below if you have any suggestions.
