David Homel will present the writer's life and pique our interests with a few short readings that will illustrate how he builds novels. He will talk about his fiction for adults, younger readers (7 - 12 yrs. old) and non-fiction, including personal essay, memoir, journalism and documentary film. In presenting his future projects, he will address what writers work on as they age and how to stay in the game.
