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.
