Food for Thought: Writer-as-Subject

Our next round of discussion titles will circle the author: books on writers Louis Bromfield (Heyman) and James Baldwin (Glaude); an imagined life of Robert Burns (McCallum); fictional writers, such as a cancer patient having hard conversations with her mother (Strout) and a fictionalized memoir of a dying brother and family history (Urrea) ; pandemic essays (Smith) and travel essays (Lopez) and memoir of early life (Solnit) and eco-memoir (Kimmerer).

We’ve been on Zoom for the last year, and look forward to meeting again in person. More on the when and where soon.
