Roswell Reads Writing Workshop

“How to Write the Story of Your People (And Not Get Killed)” with Rick Bragg
Friday, March 15, 2019, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Roswell City Hall, Room 220

Don't miss this rare opportunity to spend a virtual afternoon with Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Rick Bragg as he shares his insights about writing across a lifetime of literary achievements via video done exclusively for Roswell Reads. A popular journalist and writer known for nonfiction books, especially about his family in Alabama, Bragg populates his books with his “people,” the good, the bad and the ugly, characters that are unashamedly NOT thinly disguised.

Bragg has told stories and taught writing at Harvard University, the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, Boston University, the University of South Florida, and other colleges. He now works as a writing professor at the University of Alabama's journalism program in its College of Communications and Information Sciences.

Bragg will not be able to attend in person due to a recent hospitalization. But, he has recorded his writing workshop presentation exclusively for Roswell Reads about his body of work, including his latest book.

We promise a great event! Writers will still hear lessons learned directly from the master of Southern literature, Rick Bragg.


Workshop tickets are $20 each and will be sold online only at Seating is limited. No refunds on ticket purchases.
