[August 08, 2022]    On Saturday, August 20 at 10:00 a.m. the Atlanta Public Library will welcome Atlanta native and author, Janet Quiram Glaser writing as J.Q. Rose. Janet is the daughter of Gordon and Dorothy Quiram and sister of Jim and John Quiram.

Have fun as the class explores ways to spark memories and discover an easy way to begin recording life experiences. She will use excerpts from her book, Arranging a Dream: A Memoir, as examples of life storytelling. Her “feel-good” memoir chronicles the first year she and her husband took a chance and purchased a floral shop and greenhouse business in 1975-1976 to pursue their dream of becoming entrepreneurs.

Whether the story is fiction or non-fiction, J.Q. Rose is “focused on story.” She offers readers chills, giggles and quirky characters woven within the pages of her mystery novels.

Using her storytelling skills, she provides entertainment and information with articles featured in books, magazines, newspapers and online magazines. Combining her love of storytelling and her experience in non-fiction, J.Q. penned her memoir, Arranging a Dream.

J.Q. taught elementary school for several years and never lost the love for teaching passed down from her teacher grandmother and mother. She satisfies that aspect of her character by presenting workshops on life storytelling.
