Nancy Mairs
"Writing in the Margins"

Tuesday, March 17
Whitley Auditorium, 7:30 p.m. 

Liberal Arts Forum Lecture Series


All writing—indeed, all work—comes out of the self. Our lives are stories that we tell about ourselves, and so even the most trivial action is a form of self-expression. This observation is especially true of writers, since every word reveals a point of view, whether deliberately or not. Mairs writes personal essays explicity from an aging, disabled, feminist, spiritually-radical viewpoint, outside the mainstream, "marginalized," to use a term that emerged during the 1970s.
