Leslie Jamison Craft of Creative Nonfiction—Compassion and Confession

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

2:00pm-3:00pm

Leslie Jamison will discuss her work as a writer who brings together personal, critical, and journalistic approaches, who writes her own life alongside the lives of others. She will discuss writing about a variety of subjects, including long distance runners, prison inmates, whale fanatics, and medical patients. What are the moral complexities of writing other peoples’ lives? She will discuss the obligations a writer might feel towards her subjects—the interplay between guilt and affection, between care and skepticism. What does it mean to confess the self—in all its quandaries and questions—inside a piece of reportage? How does a piece work differently when it includes reported material alongside deeply personal reflections—when we sense the reporter as a deeply emotional and subjective presence with a story of her own?
