Join us for this special event entitled, The Dent in My Forehead: Alice Walker, Anxiety, and the Art of Biography
Evelyn C. White will discuss her decade-long journey as the official biographer of Alice Walker. In this informal conversation, she'll address the rise of the "you too can become a best-selling author" industry and the special lure that prospects for "fame and fortune" can hold over aspiring writers. Expect candor and honesty about the myriad pitfalls of commercial publishing and the resources writers in all genres can develop to claim their artistic destiny.
Note, this event coincides with the regularly scheduled time for the VB Reads...Lesbian Book Group, and participants in that group are encouraged to attend.
