Minor Memorial Library in Roxbury will present a lecture on nonfiction memoir writing, “Letter By Letter,” July 16 at 7 p.m.

Author Davyne Verstandig, local author and creative writing teacher, will explore writing as a way of illuminating knowledge of oneself in the one-hour lecture at the South Street library.

She will read from some of her own writings, demonstrate how spaces between letters can alter meaning and will talk about the rise of “short” or “flash” fiction.
