How to Write a Memoir

Just attended the talk: "How to Write a Memoir"

Saturday, 28 November, 2.00 - 4.00pm (Registration starts at 1.50pm)

Visitor's Briefing Room, Level 1, National Library Building

The session is conducted by Mr Wong Chai Kee. The talk walks through the four-year writing journey of a first-time author – of how the difficulty in getting out the first 1,000 words and other experience related to writing.

A Melbourne University-trained psychologist, Wong Chai Kee has run his own management consultancy firm, with a 190-strong client list of multinational, government-linked and mainboard-listed companies, for twenty-two years. He loves writing, and has written numerous articles on psychology and on Christianity. A voracious reader, especially of memoirs and history, he has an insatiable urge to buy books, despite reading at least a page of every book bought.

Here is the title of the book by the speaker available from National Library Online Catalogue:

Even when she forgot my name : love, life and my mother's Alzheimer's / Wong Chai Kee.

Wong, Chai Kee, 1952-

Singapore : Epigram, c2009.

Physical Description
182 p. : ports. ; 22 cm.

Some pages contain repetition of words, words crossed out, words jarred together or no words at all, to represent the state of an Alzheimer's mind.
