The annual Authors on Stage event at the Wellesley College Club takes place on Tuesday, May 2 from 9:45-noon, featuring breakfast followed by talks by three authors.
Writer and performer Jenny Allen’s new book, Would Everybody Please Stop: Reflections on Life and Other Bad Ideas is a collection of humorous essays about her attempts to make sense of the baffling and oftentimes annoying vicissitudes of daily life (and there I am, trying to figure out what vicissitudes are). Her essays have appeared in a wide range of publications, from The New Yorker to More and the recent anthology Fifty Funniest American Writers. She lives in New York.
Alan Burdick in Why Time Flies: A Mostly Scientific Investigation takes us on a personal quest to better understand the clocks inside us. Burdick, a prior National Book Award finalist, is a staff writer at The New Yorker.
Andrew Forsthoefel, author of Walking to Listen: 4,000 Miles Across America, One Story at a Time, embarked on a cross-country trek after graduating from Middlebury College in 2011. This memoir is told through the stories of people he met and spoke with – people of all ages, races, and life styles. Forsthoefel lives in Northampton.
