Join us for A Writing Life with authors Kisha Schlegel and Jennifer Boyden who will discuss their books and their writing lives.
Kisha Schlegel's first book, Fear Icons: Essays, is the winner of the inaugural Gournay Prize.

Kisha teaches creative writing at Whitman College and has also taught several sessions of creative writing to veterans of the Red Badge Project at the Public Library.
Jennifer Boyden is the author of The Chief of Rally Tree, winner of the Siskiyou Prize for Environmental Literature.
