Memoir: A Popular Genre


On The Point's monthly Books program, we discuss memoir: part autobiography, part confessional, and still an enomously popular genre. Our guests in the studio are Kelly Porter of Woods Hole Library, and Mary Fran Buckley of Eight Cousins bookstore. Kathryn Eident hosts. 

Here's a list of books we talked about on the show.

Kathryn Eident is an award-winning journalist and hosts WCAI's Morning Edition. She began producing stories for WCAI in 2008 as a Boston University graduate student reporting from the Statehouse. Since then, Kathryn’s work has appeared in the Boston Globe, Cape Cod Times, Studio 360, Scientific American, and Cape and Plymouth Business Magazine.
