AUTHOR SERIES
Impossible Craft: The Artist’s Biography
Thursdays July 10, 17, 24, 31
5:30 p.m.
So much more than a written account of the series of events that make up a person’s life, a biography is an influential document that can establish legacy and offer insights into a subject’s personality, intentions, and persuasions. Reputation-changing at times, biographies pose a great challenge to their authors, who must balance a broad spectrum of considerations as a writer, researcher, and interpreter of information.
This series of conversations explores the intricacies of this time-honored craft, the challenges that authors face, and the demands of the publishing marketplace today. A book signing and reception will follow. Free with Museum admission.
