On Writing Place
with Inara Verzemnieks and Abigail Thomas
Sunday, November 14, 2021, 3 PM – 4:15 PM EST
Sometimes landscape, geography, topography, or familiar signposts are the story, or should, at least, be integral to the story. Inara Verzemnieks and Abigail Thomas take two exceedingly different approaches to place in the essays I’ll be reviewing and sharing—with equally fabulous results. Throughout the presentation, I’ll pause to ask questions, to offer prompts, and to wait for chat room responses, which bloom like poetry. Three days in advance, an on-line link to the essay will be provided to those who sign up.
