Attend in person
Today, join Irish poet, novelist, and playwright Elaine Feeney for an in-depth consideration of A Manual for Cleaning Women by Lucia Berlin. Many readers were unaware of Berlin when this collection of short stories appeared nearly a decade after the writer’s death, but now her unsentimental, clear-eyed stories enjoy a popular position in the literary landscape. This 90-minute workshop will be enjoyable for those with existing knowledge of A Manual for Cleaning Women and for those new to Berlin’s work.
