Natalie Goldberg, award winning writer and prolific painter, celebrates the 30th anniversary of her groundbreaking work Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within and the release of her newest book The Great Spring with a reading and discussion. SFCC students will be invited to read alongside Goldberg. Her new books will be available for purchase – cash or check only. In addition, Goldberg will be signing books following the event.
Of Writing Down the Bones, Goldberg has said, “What have I learned about writing over these thirty years? I’ve written fourteen books, and it’s the practice in Bones that is the foundation, sustaining and building my writing voice, that keeps me honest, teaches me how to endure the hard times and how to drop below discursive thinking, to taste the real meat of our minds and the life around us.”
