The Writing Life

February 24 , 5:00 pm

Writing is hard. The isolation and loneliness that come with working as a writer can be harder still. Is it worth it? How do celebrated authors like Alice McDermott and Roger Rosenblatt keep going?

Join these two friends for an uplifting and inspiring conversation about the beauty and madness of writing life. They’ll share insights, wisdom, and humor—as well as stories from their ongoing “humiliations competition” in which they report their latest hilarious humbling experiences as writers. And they’ll discuss their faith in art as a light leading away from horror and cruelty and toward a nobler life.
