novelist on KWH-TV

Novelist (and memoirist and short story writer) MARY GORDON will be visiting the Writers House here in Philadelphia as a Kelly Writers House Fellow - next Monday and Tuesday (April 27-28).

The Tuesday morning session - an informal interview & conversation, moderated by me - is an event in which you can participate. You can watch it live on KWH-TV. But, more, we encourage you to ask Mary Gordon questions by sending them by email. And we also encourage you to phone us with your questions--to talk directly to Ms. Gordon and me.

The Tuesday morning event will begin at precisely 10:30 AM eastern time.

To participate in the KWH-TV live Mary Gordon program, please RSVP to

- at which point we will send you simple instructions for connecting to the video and for posing questions.

Writers House Fellows are made possible by an ongoing generous grant from Paul Kelly.
