Most people know The Waters on 50th in Minneapolis as a senior living community, but did you know it is also something of a storytelling mecca? The community's writing group is about to release its third published book.
Distinctly I Remember: More Stories We Love to Tell by The Writers Group at The Waters on 50th features the work of eight residents, ranging in age from 80 to 95. The book will officially release on Sat., Jan 25 at 2 p.m. during a launch party at the Waters on 50th, located at 3500 W 50th St, Minneapolis, MN 55410. The event will take place around the fireplace in the Great Room, and feature readings by several of the authors, followed by signings.
Noted Twin Cities poet and author Kathleen Novak served as both the writing coach and editor of the 40-page book, which is divided into three sections: essays people have written about home, essays about love and courage, and original stories ranging from funny anecdotes to serious reflections. “Our group demonstrates how stories bring people together, transform a difficult time and connect the present to the past as though the years had never gone by,” Novak said.
Two of the authors are being published posthumously. Dave Shryer and Janet Shapiro, longstanding participants, passed away during 2019. The other writers whose work is featured are June Kelly, Gerry Sell, Jeanne Dyste, Earl Carson, Helen Laird and Arminta Miller. Most of the authors of Distinctly I Remember also have stories in the first two books published by the group: Cardboard in Our Shoes and You Should Have Been There.
