Memory Work

Do you hide memories away in boxes under beds, at the top corners of closets? Or do you keep them all around you, cluttered up on your mantel and stuck to the front of your fridge? From our personal stories to our public histories, memory affects the way we view and move through our world. I talk with journalist Pauline Dakin, writer Emma Donoghue, memoirist Jennifer Browdy, and poet Canisia Lubrin about the power of memory and how to harness its mystery and meaning.
