The New York Times Book Review calls her latest book, Write for Your Life (Random House, Available April 12, 2022), a “clarion call to pick up a pen and find yourself from ‘one of our most astute chroniclers of modern life.'” Quindlen makes a case that it has never been more important to capture what we’re thinking and feeling through writing. We will discuss how she believes writing better connects us to ourselves and those we love, and delve into her deep history as a writer to learn how she approaches her own writing practice.
