Panel Discussion

Setting and landscape infuse books and novels with a sense of place. A well-placed description or attention to the details of a street, city, or town can evoke powerful memories and a sense of attachment. How do authors use landscapes and place in their work? Join author Marita Golden (A Long Distance Life and The Wide Circumference of Love) as she leads a conversation with Natalie Hopkinson (Go-Go Live) about how they use memory, landscapes, and the love of place to inform their work.
