Nonfiction Visiting Writer on Thursday Feb 19
Alexandra Johnson, author of Leaving a Trace: On Keeping a Journal and The Hidden Writer: Diaries and the Creative Life, which won the PEN/Jerard Fund Special Citation Award for nonfiction, is reading at GMU on Thursday February 19 at 7:30 pm in Research I, room 163. A reception will be held just before the reading in the lobby area outside of room 163. Be there—her first book, The Hidden Writer, which brings to life diaries by Sonya Tolstoy, Alice James, Virginia Woolf, and Katherine Mansfield (to name a few) is excellent, and she is bound to be interesting.
