Live From Prairie Lights: Sandra Scofield
American Book Award winner and National Book Award finalist Sandra Scofield will read from Swim: Stories from the Sixties. These three stories focus on a young woman—we never know her name—who travels light and asks for little. She knows what men want: sex and authority. She is a critical observer and passionate recorder of experience. Living lean, she claims her selfhood by making her life her story.
Sandra Scofield is on the faculty of the Solstice MFA low-residency program at Pine Manor College. She has taught at the Iowa Summer Writing Festival since 1993. She is the author of seven novels, a memoir, a book of essays about family, a book of stories, and two craft books for writers. She is a native Texan who has spent the last forty years in Oregon and Montana.
