’68: In Their Own Write

IN THEIR OWN WRITE: In a session that’s a cross between “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Hyde Park Corner and a rodeo, our authors gather to regale, debate, story-tell but never mince words in a speed-dating-like round-the-table forum in the elegant confines of Griffin Hall, raising the echo of Robert G.L. Waite.

Among the participants and their 5-to-10-minute topics: Peter Abrahams on a life in crime;  Alexander Caskey on creating a website; Geoff Connor on working history into novels; John Fulkerson on wine and integrity; Bob Graffagnino on the Greatest Generation; Robert Herzog, reading from his new novel; Ken Jackson on the future of print on paper; Tony Kronman on his “Confessions of a Born-Again Pagan“; Ted McMahon and Rosanne Olson will sing their poetry; Peter Naylor on teaching practical economics; David Sipress (via FaceTime) on cartooning; and Ned Williams on fixing everything.

Plus surprise guests.

John Stickney will moderate/referee/time-keep

3 to 4:30 p.m., Thursday, June 7, 2018, Griffin 3. With light refreshments.
