Award-winning author will give a talk on stories
Join Dr. Charles Johnson, Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Washington and a National Book Award winner, for an evening of conversation, called The Power of Story, at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 9, at The Blue Heron.
Based on his short story “Night Hawks” that describes a series of dinner conversations he held with playwright August Wilson for more than a decade, Johnson will facilitate a group-directed analysis of his story and explore questions audience members might have about theme, composition, content, genesis and the art of writing.
“I prefer platonic dialogue over a lecture format,” Johnson said in a press release. “I encourage people to come prepared with questions to stimulate a conversation so we can dig in deep.”
Those planning to attend can obtain a free copy of the assigned reading, “Night Hawks,” at The Blue Heron or online at www.vashonalliedarts.org.
Tickets are $18 for VAA members, students and seniors and $22 for general audience. Tickets are available at VAA and www.vashonalliedarts.org.
