Here’s the letter that’s been sent out by the event organizers:
Dear Southern Oregon Educators,
I am writing to inform you of the upcoming Chautauqua Poets and Writers event. We are pleased to announce nonfiction writer Alexandra Fuller will read February 19, 7:30 p.m., at Ashland High School’s Mountain Avenue Theater.
Alexandra Fuller’s memoir Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood won the Booksense Nonfiction Book of the Year in 2003.
The second memoir Alexandra Fuller wrote, Scribbling the Cat: Travels with an African Soldier, also received international acclaim.
Her newest book, The Legend of Colton H. Bryan, is set in Wyoming.
Alexandra Fuller follows our writers from 2006-2008, Naomi Shihab Nye, Jane Hirshfield, Alberto Ríos, Ted Kooser, Robert Pinsky, and Li-Young Lee.
In conjunction with the featured Chautauqua event, she will conduct writing workshops for Oregon Writing Project alumni and for student groups from throughout the Rogue Valley.
We are generously supported by grants and sponsorships from the Oregon Writing Project at Southern Oregon University, SOU Department of Language, Literature, and Philosophy, Ashland School District, Jackson County Coalition of the Oregon Cultural Trust, City of Ashland Economic and Cultural Development, and Friends of Ashland Public Library.
We sincerely hope you can encourage your students to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to attend a reading by an award-winning writer of memoir and nonfiction.
