Some memoir writers might be better served turning their projects into fiction. This month's dinner speaker, Fred Setterberg, might steer you in that direction.
When Setterberg came to realize that his seemingly ordinary Baby Boomer upbringing in a blue-collar, East Bay suburb was proving extraordinary, he knew he had to write a book about it. Memoir seemed the way to go for the veteran journalist. There was a danger, however, that the memoir would seem more ordinary than Setterberg's insights deserved.
He will explain how fiction enhanced his premise for Lunch Bucket Paradise, and how it might enhance yours.
