FAMILY MEMOIR WORKSHOP at Writopia Lab (Dec. 27, 10 a.m. to noon). Many families preserve their memories through photos and videos, but Writopia Lab, a national organization offering creative writing programs to children and teenagers, has another suggestion: words. In this Manhattan workshop, each participating family member will write about the same shared experience, whether humorous or dramatic. Instructors will offer help, and the writers will share — without any critiques — their individual perspectives with their relatives and the group. One rule: No one can say, “That’s not how it happened!” (Registration is recommended.)
