About the Session
Many of us come to writing through a love of reading: the strike of literary lightning, a certain line or phrase that stays with us for years. As we continue to grow as writers and participate in the community, our creative process evolves, being shaped and informed by the relationships we have with the works of others. Join authors Deborah Miranda, Patricia Murphy, and Tara Ison for a discussion on the intimate and necessary relationships we have with literature: what books woke them up for the first time, how active reading impacts their lives and their art, and how reading is part of their writing rituals.
