Dalí to inspire memoir writing, Beach Art Center to host show, Woodson Museum to light tree


Let dalÍ inspire persistence of your memories

Margo Hammond, former book editor of the St. Petersburg Times and founder of the Creative Late Bloomers blog, will conduct a workshop using Dalí paintings and writings as catalysts for memoir writing from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday at the Dalí Museum, 1 Dalí Blvd. (Bayshore Drive at Fifth Avenue SE). After studying the paintings in class, participants will be encouraged to refine childhood memories and transform them into a story — just as Dalí did on canvas and on paper. $65; $55 for Dalí Museum members.
