I have to read a memoir for school, but i don't know any. I don't really know what a memoir would be. Does anyone have any memoir suggestions? Any about magic? or anything? please help! Thanks

technically, a memoir is a descriptive writing of one of your meemories. but maybe you wrote a story or had a dream about magic. or you read your first magic-ish book. ???

A memoir is like a retelling of a personal experience, so no there wouldn't be anything about magic. I know it's a bummer, I love magical stories!

Maybe you could try reading the memoir of a favorite author. See if any of your favorite fantasy authors (by your mention of magic, I assume you're a bit of a fantasy fan) have written a memoir.

The funniest memoir I have ever read is by David Sedaris. Try his first book called Naked. He also wrote Me Talk Pretty One Day and he has others as well. I usually go to Amazon.com and type in memoir and you can read a little synopsis about each book.

The best memoir i read is Steve and Me by Terri Irwin. I cried so much...but Steve is my hero, so it was hard for me to read....but i think you should read a memoir about your hero....
