Clark College’s Columbia Writers Series is back with guest speaker Sloane Crosley on Nov. 18 at 4 p.m.
The virtual Zoom talk and Q & A is free and open to the public. To join, visit An Evening With Sloane Crosley and enter the password: series 2122.
Novelist and non-fiction writer Crosley will talk about many of her famous essays, as well as her essay collections, like the upcoming Cult Classic which is set to come out in June 2022.
While being online is not the same, Crosley is excited to reach more people virtually. Plus Portland is one of her favorite cities in the U.S.
Crosley is excited to share her novels of essays with
participants because of the current prevalence of non-fiction narratives, and to share an insightful discussion with the participants as writers.
“When you write something, or when you speak really about what you’ve written, there’s a way in which it no longer belongs to you,” Crosley said. “When I look back and think about lectures I’ve been to…I think the people who gave those talks would be very surprised to know whatever little nuggets that I took away and then kept with me forever.”
