Point Loma Nazarene University will present its 19th annual Writer’s Symposium By The Sea, Feb. 20-27, bringing in such literary luminaries as Jeannette Walls (“Glass Castle,” “Silver Star,” “Half-Broke Horses,” “Dish”); New York Times columnist Samuel Freedman (“Breaking the Line, “Upon This Rock,” “Small Victories”); Anne Lamott (“Bird By Bird,” “Stitches”), and in cooperation with UCSD, cancer researcher and writer Siddhartha Mukherjee, whose book “The Emperor of All Maladies,” won the Pulitzer Prize.
Symposium founder Dean Nelson will conduct the evening interviews, promising lively conversations about the stories behind the author’s stories. The audience gets to eavesdrop on these exchanges and interact with writers during the Q&A sessions that follow. Published writers providing tips and insight into the writing process will conduct the afternoon workshops.
