The University of Chicago Press is hosting a book launch event for I’ll Tell You Mine: Thirty Years of Essays from the Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program.
The launch will feature DePaul’s MAWP professor Michele Morano as well as author and College of DuPage Professor Tom Fate – both contributors and alumni of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop Nonfiction Writing Program. The event place at the Oak Park Public Library on Sunday, November 22nd from 3:30-4:45 pm.
I’ll Tell You Mine is an anthology rooted in Iowa’s successful program that goes beyond mere celebration to present some of the best nonfiction writing of the past thirty years. Eighteen pieces produced by Iowa graduates exemplify the development of both the program and the field of nonfiction writing. Each is accompanied by commentary from the author on a challenging issue presented by the stroy and the writing process, including drafting, work-shopping, revising, and listening to (or sometimes ignoring) advice.
