Taking as starting points five Thoreauvian aperçus, George Howe Colt will discuss lessons learned from a half-century of writing, touching on such topics as how a reader becomes a writer, what it means to write from the inside out, how to see the forest and the trees, and what happens when two writers marry.

George Howe Colt is the bestselling author of The Big House, which was a National Book Award finalist and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year; BrothersNovember of the Soul; and The Game. He lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife, the writer Anne Fadiman.
