Join us for the 2015 Moravian Writers’ Conference: “Stories and/of Home”

Memory is episodic, aggrandizing, mischievous, iconic, and also mostly all we have of who we were back then. The anecdotes are easy; it’s the continuum that eludes us—all that falls between the heroic and the mournful, all the taken-for-granted everydayness that you can never see from a distance. Measured in terms of time and contradictions, my childhood home can’t be reached from here. Measured by asphalt and traffic lights, it’s a 50-minute drive.
