72 years after he was born, Wendell Affield discovered who his biological father was and gained seven new siblings overnight.

In this workshop, Affield will share the story of how he unearthed previously undiscovered family secrets using writing exercises and strategies to reawaken old memories – happy, sad and traumatic – through sensory triggers.

This workshop will also cover the resources Affield used to uncover family secrets starting from the 1918 Spanish Influenza Epidemic and on, including medical records and more, as well as how to start a writers’ group in your community.
