September: Biographies & Memoirs

This month's theme is biographies and memoirs. A biography is a work of non-fiction based off a person’s life. Memoirs are a recalling of a certain set of memories in someone’s life. The most popular books right now at SPGL, “Becoming” by Michelle Obama and “Educated” by Tara Westover are a biography and a memoir, respectively.

You can’t fit everything into a book. What do you think the authors of biographies leave out?

Would you like to meet an author of a biography? If so, who?
