Memoir collection

The Association of MIT Retirees introduced a memoir-writing workshop for members in 2011. This class of dedicated writers is led by Nita Regnier, Association advisory committee member and former instructor in MIT's Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies in the Writing Center. The writers have produced fine work which they wish to share with you. While the stories represent a wide range of experiences and generations, some reminiscences may resonate with you and perhaps inspire a flashback or two.

Read stories by Association members:

Bill Snow: "The Peddlers"

Maria Clara Valenzuela: "My Birthplace, My Childhood, The Philippines"

Gloria J. Pless: "How I Learned to Save Money and Shop in Filene's Basement"

Joe Collins: "My Good Friend Sammy Joe"

Elsa Tian: "Extracurricular Activities," "Family Visits," and "Don't Stop Dreaming"

Bill Snow: "Madame Boisvert"

Karen Keefe Luxton: "Christmas in the Fifties"

New members are welcome to join the memoir class! Please contact the Association at 617-253-7910 or for information.
