The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Auburn University, or OLLI at Auburn, will host a memoir writing class and a Brown Bag lunch on Tuesday, Aug. 11, at the Clarion Inn & Suites, 1577 S. College St., Auburn. The Writing Our Lives class is from 9:30 to 11 a.m. and will be led by Terry Ley, retired professor of English education.

Ley will begin the 90-minute class with a brief lesson on the importance of opening sentences with examples from well-known writers. Then he will offer writing prompts associated with music and participants will write briefly about one of them.

The Brown Bag, which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., will begin with a brief overview of the Writing Our Lives class. Ten members of the class, some of them charter members, will read a life story they have written.
