UW-Baraboo/Sauk County Library and Baraboo Public Library are collaborating on the publication of a book featuring memoirs in the Palm of the Hand style.
The book will contain personal stories from people who live and work in Sauk County today. A reflection of the people who make up our community, these stories will bind past and present in a mosaic of individual experiences. All members of the community are welcome to write and submit a story in the Palm of the Hand memoir style, a method that focuses on individual memories.
Submitted stories will be gathered together by library staff and then printed and hand-bound by Michael Czarnecki of FootHills Publishing. Michael is the developer of the Palm of the Hand memoir style, and a frequent visitor and speaker at both the Baraboo Public and UW-Baraboo/Sauk County Libraries.
The finished version of Sauk County’s Palm of the Hand Memoirs will be available in late November 2015. They will have a small cost ($10) associated with them to cover the expense of printing and binding.
