The stories we tell about our lives can be a source of inspiration, shame, revelation, happiness, confusion, and everything in between. In this event, we are joined by Lynne Tillman, Ahndraya Parlato, and Juliet Jacques, three authors who have approached the subject of memoir in diverse and unique ways, to discuss what it means to write from life, the variety of forms memoir can take across writing and art, and what the act of looking back can tell us about the creative process.
This event celebrates the launch of Stephen Shore's new memoir Modern Instances: The Craft of Photography.

About Modern Instances: The Craft of Photography
Stephen Shore’s Modern Instances: The Craft of Photography is an experimental new memoir from one of the world’s most innovative and influential artists – an impressionistic scrapbook documenting the rich and surprising touchstones which have shaped over half a century of ground-breaking work. Bringing together essays, insights, artworks, and encounters, with references ranging from garden design to baseball and nineteenth-century novels to Instagram filters, this is an essential handbook for anyone interested in mastering their craft and learning about the distinct threads that come together to inform a creative voice. Modern Instances proposes a new way of thinking about the world around us, in which the smallest moment can become a source of boundless inspiration, if only we pay attention.
