New York Times best-selling author Ann Hood, founding director of Salve's low-residency MFA in creative writing, will lead this afternoon conversation about the writing life. Hood will discuss her reading habits, her writing hangups and how to conquer the blank page.
Come with questions. Refresments will be served and books will be for sale and available for signing.
Hood is the editor of "Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting" and the author of "The Book That Matters Most," "The Knitting Circle," "The Red Thread," "Comfort" and "An Italian Wife," among other works. She is the recipient of two Pushcart Prizes, a Best American Spiritual Writing award, a Best American Food Writing award, a Best American Travel Writing award and the Paul Bowles Prize for Short Fiction. Her new book, "Kitchen Yarns: Notes on Love, Life and Food" is due out in December.
