Red Raven Community Room
Book Discussion and Writing Workshop with Alison Graham-Bertolini
Dr. Graham-Bertolini will host a book discussion / writing workshop that takes as its model and focus The Things They Carried, by Tim O’Brien. Although it is helpful to have read the novel for the discussion, it is not necessary to have done so. The workshop will challenge participants to merge aspects of their own biographies with fiction by engaging in some writing of their own. This is a core aspect of The Things They Carried, which blurs the line between the real and the imaginary. This will be an enjoyable way to try to capture the emotional reality of our own lived experiences.
