CONVERTING GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH INTO FICTION, NONFICTION, BIOGRAPHY, AND FAMILY STORIES with Peggy Williams

Genealogy aficionado Peggy Williams, writer-in-residence at Write On, is working on a two-book fiction series written in the spirit of her Filles du Roi ancestors (women who migrated from France to Canada in the late 1600s under sponsorship of King Louis XIV). After having done extensive family history research and even walked in the footsteps of her ancestors in Montreal and Quebec City, Peggy is excited to offer a writing workshop in which she will share tips and strategies for converting family history research into fiction, nonfiction, and biography.

A Yooper by birth and a Cheesehead by choice, Peggy Williams is a writer, freelance editor, elementary school teacher, mother of two and grandmother of three.  She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Michigan State University and a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  A member Wisconsin Screenwriters Forum, Sisters in Crime, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, she has co-written two stage plays and a dozen screenplays with Christine DeSmet, one of which is in post-production by a Madison production company.

 

This program is presented in collaboration with the Door County Library and is free and open to the public.
