The Story of Your Life…

If you wrote a book of the Story of Your Life, what would the title be? Discuss titles of autobiography — maybe it’s just the person’s name, maybe it’s something that identifies the person, maybe something like an inspiring quotation?

Some titles of autobiographies:

  • The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
  • I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
  • Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance
  • Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood
  • Iacocca: The Lee Iococca Story
  • My Life (by Bill Clinton)

Class will review what book covers look like for autobiographies.

Design three different covers for your book, each one 400px wide by 600px height, saved as JPG. You will put all three covers into one folder and hand that in to dropoff on Friday, April 6.
