American Book Award winner and National Book Award finalist Sandra Scofield will read from Swim: Stories from the Sixties. These three stories focus on a young woman—we never know her name— who travels light and asks for little. She knows what men want: sex and authority. She is a critical observer and passionate recorder of experience. Living lean, she claims her selfhood by making her life her Story.
Sandra Scofield is on the faculty of the Solstice MFA low residency program at Pine Manor College. She has taught at the Iowa Summer Writing Festival since 1993. She is the author of seven novels, a memoir, a book of essays about family, a book of stories, and two craft books for writers.
