Location: Changing Hands Bookstore
Workshop: Writing about Setting • 6:30-8:30pm
Frequent New Yorker magazine contributor Marisa Silver, author of the acclaimed
novel The God of War, leads a workshop about the elements of writing about
setting. "Place can provide a springboard for character development and the
development of action," Silver says. "Setting is really a function of the
characters who see it, live in it, and interact with it."
In addition to elaborating this principle through interactive writing exercises,
Silver will discuss the publishing process and read from The God of War, which
Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls, calls "[A] novel
of great metaphorical depth and beauty. It stays with you like a lesson well and
