Memoirs are no longer seen as the self-indulgent domain of those at the end of long and accomplished lives: millennials around the world are writing fresh and compelling stories, tackling everything from the legal system to life in the shadow of Tiananmen Square to mental health. Our panelists compare their experiences of putting their lives on the page.

Memoar tidak lagi dipandang sebagai lingkup yang memanjakan diri bagi orang-orang di akhir kehidupannya yang panjang dan sempurna: para milenial di seluruh dunia menulis kisah-kisah menyegarkan dan menarik, bercerita tentang beragam hal  dari sistem hukum untuk tinggal dalam bayang-bayang Tiananmen Square hingga kesehatan mental. Panelis kami membandingkan pengalaman mereka menuliskan kehidupan mereka dalam sebuah karya.
