The History Center has sponsored a Bridgeport Memoir Writing Class since 2002.  Our class has continued to write about memories not only of Bridgeport, but about the stories that we find have linked our lives. We all have shared landscapes of memories, common experiences in daily life.  Newcomers are welcome.  Please join us!
