Award-winnning writer Jaquira Diaz is making a huge splash with her debut memoir Ordinary Girls. She’s on a national book tour and I’ll have the pleasure of interviewing her at Magers & Quinn in Minneapolis.
Thanks to an invitation from the wonderful writer Linda LeGarde Grover, I’ll be visiting the UMD Multicultural Center over the lunch hour and then doing a reading at 4pm. Duluth holds a lot of history for my Minnesota side of the family, so I’m looking forward to my visit.
The debut author panel at HippoCamp writing conference from Hippocampus Magazine includes James M. Chesbro, Tyrese L. Coleman, Randon Billings Noble, Suzanne Farrell Smith, Teresa Wong, and me, moderated by Hippocampus founder Donna Talarico.
I’m so excited to visit Lake Country Booksellers in White Bear Lake, MN. My great-aunt was one of the founders. She’s the person who gave me my first set of Anne of Green Gables when I turned 12, which ultimately played a big role in turning me into a writer. I wish she were here today to see it.
I’m excited to offer a new version of my creative nonfiction class this summer at the Loft. This half-day workshop on June 22 will explore very short creative nonfiction, often called flash nonfiction. We’ll spend the morning reading, writing, and sharing true stories. Register
