The Writer's Voice: Naomi Williams
From Jeff Layne
Faculty, University of California, Davis
Author Naomi Williams reads from her novel, “Landfalls,” about French maritime explorations in the 18th century. Each chapter is written from a different point of view – the captain, deckhands, indigenous persons. In this presentation, she reads a chapter titled “Above the Mangroves” that takes place in Australia. Ms. Williams won a Pushcart Prize for her work. She earned a creative writing degree from UC Davis and now teaches there.
