Altadena Public Library Presents Family Legacy Workshop with Linda Weaver Clarke

Come join the Altadena Library District and Linda Weaver Clarke on Tuesday, April 5, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Barbara J. Pearson Community Room, for a fun and informative Family Legacy workshop!

It’s important to teach children their heritage. Each of us has a story from our ancestors or even our own story to tell. It’s up to us to write these experiences down. Learn the most important elements of writing your family history, autobiography, and develop your writing skills. Find out how to get your books published, edited, and ready for print. Help your ancestors come alive on paper. Make your family legacy something your children will be proud of.

Linda Weaver Clarke, lecturer and author, flies throughout the United States presenting her workshop to libraries. She has traveled to seventeen states and presented over 500 workshops. Mary Jo Gohlke, Adult Programming for Stockton Library, wrote: “Ms Clarke appeals to genealogists and aspiring authors. I was terribly impressed! The people were genuinely attuned to what she presents. She knows her subject and can present it wonderfully. She is thorough, professional, yet strikes just the right chord with her audience.”

Clarke will be teaching at the Altadena Library on April 5th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The Author’s award-winning novel will be available for sale after the event. To learn more about her classes, visit
