Pamela Petro & Jane Brox – The Long Field, A Memoir of Wales and The Presence of Absence

October 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm EST

Pamela Petro writes, ‘I’m not Welsh by birth or ancestry. I’m simply Welsh by choice.’

In The Long Field, she burrows deep into the Welsh countryside to tell how this small country became a big part of an American writer’s life. Petro (Nonfiction and Graphic Novel & Comics, MFA Writing Faculty) and her friend, author Jane Brox (Nonfiction, MFA Writing Faculty), sit down for a conversation about the book, about writing memoir and about the powerful places that hold us and keep calling us back.

Pamela Petro is the author of Travels in an Old Tongue, Sitting Up With The Dead and The Slow Breathe of Stone. Jane Brox has written five books, most recently Silence: A Social History of One Of The Least Understood Elements of Our Lives (2019), which received the 2020 Maine Literary Award for NonFiction.
