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.
June 5-7, 2015 on the campus of Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA
- Keynote speaker Beth Kephart, author of the YA novels Small Damages and Going Over; Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir; Flow: The Life and Times of Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River; and many other books—along with the popular Beth Kephart Books blog (http://beth-kephart.blogspot.com/).
