Lunch & Learn With Robin Black

April 16, 2013 12:00 PM

Robin Black will discuss the book she is currently working on, which is about a mother who flees the strains and the judgments of her suburban community, taking her disabled daughter out into the country and away from it all.

Robin Black’s first story collection If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This, was published in 2010 to international acclaim by multiple critics. The stories, written over a period of eight years, focus on families at points of crisis and of growth. Though the book can be seen as a study of loss, it is also a study of the miraculous ways in which people move forward from the inevitable challenges of life.

Robin’s stories and essays have appeared in numerous publications including The Southern Review, The New York Times Magazine, One Story, The Georgia Review, Colorado Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, Freight Stories, Indiana Review, and The Best Creative Nonfiction, Vol. I (Norton, 2007). She holds degrees from Sarah Lawrence College and the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers.

Bring Bag Lunch (refreshments will be provided)
