First Review of APH Anthology

Here is the first review for
on Story Circle Network:

"If you're a fan (as I am) of stories rooted in real life, you will very much enjoy this book. It would also make a delightful gift for the storytellers in your family—and might even give them a few valuable ideas (and some important motivation) for telling their own stories. And if you're a teacher of memoir, reminiscence, or personal history, it would make an excellent addition to your classroom teaching or to your students' reading list. Imaginatively conceived, thoughtfully arranged, and professionally edited and presented, *My Words Are Gonna Linger: The Art of Personal
History* will be a source of pleasure, information, and instruction."
