DESCRIPTION
Acclaimed novelist, essayist and humanist Joan Didion is the award-winning author of Slouching Toward Bethlehem, The Last Thing He Wanted and The Year of Magical Thinking, a deeply personal memoir recounting the sudden loss of her husband and the ultimately fatal illness of her only child. That book took home the National Book Award in 2005 and Didion continues to create. Coming in fall 2011 is Didion’s newest book Blue Nights, a memoir on aging that also delves into her relationship with her daughter. This remarkable author appears for a reading and conversation with UCLA English professor and bestselling novelist Mona Simpson, author of My Hollywood, Anywhere But Here and Off Keck Road.
