Danielle Ofri on Memoir vs. Biography

In January, my Advanced Memoir Workshop at StoryStudio Chicago was fortunate enough to host Danielle Ofri for an author Q&A session via Skype. Danielle Ofri is not only a doctor at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, she is also the editor-in-chief of the renowned Bellevue Literary Review, and the author of three memoirs, most recently Medicine in Translation. She was kind enough to answer our questions about writing her first memoir, Singular Intimacies, about becoming a doctor at Bellevue. I will be sharing some clips of our discussion on this blog. Here she talks about the difference between memoir and (auto)biography.
