Please join us today for a craft talk with Laura van den Berg!

The conversation will center on The Isle of Youth, the process of writing and publishing story collections, the author’s experiences in small press and big house publishing, and the different “creative trajectories” writers can take.

186 Carpenter Street, Providence

3-5 pm. 

Laura van den Berg was raised in Florida and earned her M.F.A. at Emerson College.
