Inheriting Identity: Fiction as Emotional Autobiography. Elizabeth Rosner
Sometimes a novelist’s subject matter isn’t chosen so much as discovered from within. In this talk, I’ll share my process of finding — and fictionalizing — the complicated and dramatic material inside my family’s history.
Novelist, poet and essayist Elizabeth Rosner is the author of THE SPEED OF LIGHT and BLUE NUDE. Her prize-winning and national best-selling works of fiction address themes of inherited grief and the redemptive power of storytelling. Her newest novel ELECTRIC CITY will be published by Counterpoint Press in 2014.
