The Bell County Writers Guild Spring Open House, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, April 3, will include a presentation from Thatcher Freund, a journalist and memoir writer. Mr. Freund will talk about the importance of stories for individuals and culture, and why it matters so much that we preserve them.

Mr. Freund was born and raised in Austin. His published work includes The Python Trail, the story of an immigrant’s journey from Cameroon to America, and Objects of Desire: The Lives of Antiques and Those Who Pursue Them, which follows the lives of three pieces of American furniture from their creations in the 18th century to their sales at Sotheby’s 250 years later. Besides his speaking engagements, Thatcher helps people write personal memoirs and teaches workshops on memoir writing.
