Paula Becker discusses “The Truth and I

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
The engaging story of Northwest author Betty MacDonald (“The Egg and I”) is the focus when Paula Becker appears Saturday, Jan. 20, at the Brightwater Education Center. Becker’s topic is “The Truth and I: Reading Betty MacDonald in the Age of Memoirs.”
The free 10 a.m. program is presented by the Woodinville Heritage Society in conjunction with Humanities Washington. Brightwater Education Center is located at 22505 Highway 9, just north of Costco.
Although she wrote autobiographically, MacDonald stretched the truth on occasion, hence Becker’s invitation to explore what “truth” in memoir means, particularly with the increase in memoir-style books today.
Join us Jan. 20 to hear Paula Becker, who is from the Speakers Bureau of Humanities Washington.
