Author Talk: Therese Anne Fowler – Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald
Monday, April 1, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Combining extensive research and a novelist’s eye, Therese Anne Fowler brings Zelda Fitzgerald to life. The author visits the library to discuss Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald and why the subject captivated her for her re-imagined novel – the tumultuous union with a famous husband, the soirées with the most notable figures of the Jazz Age, playgrounds from New York to Paris to the French Riviera. Ms. Fowler has a BA in sociology/cultural anthropology and an MFA in creative writing. Her work has won honors from the Faulkner Society and Thomas Wolfe Fiction prize competitions. She was an editorial assistant and taught undergraduate fiction writing before leaving academia to write full-time. An Illinois native, she has two grown sons and two nearly grown stepsons, and lives in North Carolina with her husband. Registration encouraged.
