In a special event introduced by NWP founder Carl Klaus, bestselling Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program Alums Hope Edelman, Joe Blair and Will Jennings will read from the new anthology, I’ll Tell You Mine: Thirty Years of Essays from the Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program. Over the past three decades the NWP has produced some of the most influential nonfiction writers in the country. I’ll Tell You Mine, edited by Hope Edelman and Robin Hemley, contains eighteen pieces produced by Iowa graduates that exemplify the development of both the program and the field of nonfiction writing. Each is accompanied by commentary from the author on a challenging issue presented by the story and the writing process, including drafting, workshopping, revising, and listening to (or sometimes ignoring) advice.
