The Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program presents Durga Chew-Bose, who will read from her collection of essays, Too Much and Not the Mood. "A warmly considered meld of criticism and memoir, a self-portrait of the writer as intrepid mental wanderer. [Chew-Bose's] enthusiasms for art, literature, movies, friendship, and family life are as broad as they are deeply felt." —Alexandra Schwartz
