The 5th biannual Spring BookFest 2022, held on April 2nd and 3rd is just days away. The BookFest follows the following programing, day one is devoted to readers, and day two is for writers. One panel that everyone should know about is the panel on male memoirs, titled: “Decoding His Story — Men Who Write Memoirs.”
Memoir writing requires vulnerability; we live in a culture that doesn’t work to develop those qualities in males. As said by Sue William Silverman, a prominent memoir writer: “The surge in contemporary memoir writing is women-driven.” But as the world changes, we see both men and women using a memoir as a vehicle for transformation. We have a list of male memoirs guaranteed to broaden your horizons and make you see the world a little differently.
