Anne Trubek — Author of A Skeptic’s Guide to Writers’ Houses — at the Decatur Library

Written on March 9, 2011 at 1:13 pm, by Sue

Anne Trubek, esteemed author, professor, and person of note on Twitter, has written a book called A Skeptic’s Guide to Writers’ Houses AND IT IS A TRIUMPH.

Why, it’s just the book we — ahem, the Wren’s Nest and the Southern Literary Trail — have been waiting for.

Not since Brock Clarke’s An Arsonist’s Guide to Writers’ Homes in New England has there been a book so prominently featuring the words “writers” and “homes” or “houses” in the title.

It should come as no surprise then that we’re bringing Anne Trubek to the Decatur Library on Monday, March 28th at 7:15 pm for a rousing discussion of just how bizarre writers’ homes really are.

Big ups to the Georgia Center for the Book for co-hosting this event as a part of the Southern Literary Trail. Books will be available for purchase, you bet.

If you can’t stand the wait, amuse yourself with Ms. Trubek’s essay in the New York Times’ Sunday Book Review. Or think back fondly on our previous author events, like that time we brought Chimamanda Adichie here.
