READING/TALK

"The Virtue of Ignorance"

Thursday, April 25

7:00 pm

Keystone College

La Plume, PA

Writers need to approach whatever they're writing about as empty vessels -- acknowledging the gaps (often, the immense gaps) in their knowledge, knowing these must be filled and eager to fill them. This requires courage, humility, perseverance. Seeded throughout the talk will be examples from my own books about what I didn't know at the outset and the lengths to which I went to (hopefully) fill those holes.
