BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com via Press Release) — Florida Atlantic University’s department of English in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will present author Eula Biss with a lecture titled “Writing Creative Nonfiction” on Tuesday, March 13 at 7 p.m., and a reading on Thursday, March 15 at 7 p.m. in the Live Oak Pavilion, FAU Student Union, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.
Biss is the author of The Balloonists and Notes from No Man’s Land: American Essays. She describes The Balloonists, as “an essay on marriage in prose poetry.” The second book, an investigation of the history of racial identity in America told through a personal exploration of whiteness, won the 2009 National Book Critics Circle Award for criticism. Biss is currently a Guggenheim Fellow and teaches creative writing at Northwestern University. She is working on her next book, Quickening: On Medicine, Myth and Metaphor, which she describes as an exploration of the intersection of public health and private decisions in the areas of childbirth, breastfeeding, vaccinations and plastics.
The lecture and reading are free and open to the public. The lectures are made possible through an endowment gift by the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation in memory of Sanders, a best-selling South Florida novelist. Support was also provided in part by the Palm Beach County Cultural Council. For more information, call 561-297-2553
