Writer's Voice: Joan Frank
From Jeff Layne on August 15th, 2016
Joan Frank reads from her essay collection, “Because You Have To: A Writing Life,” which won the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award. Commenting on her own writing path, and her beliefs about what it takes to be and remain “in the life,” Frank reads from essays describing the phenomenon of rejection, and about those intervals when a writer realizes, in the midst of writing’s routines and rituals, that she is actually happy. A MacDowell Colony Fellow and recipient of many grants and awards, Frank is the author of five books of literary fiction and her recent book of essays.
