Cagibi welcomes Beverly Donofrio and Nick Flynn, two authors who will read from their work and discuss the writer’s life at the October writing retreat.
Beverly Donofrio is the bestselling author of three memoirs, Astonished, Looking for Mary, and Riding in Cars with Boys; three children’s books; and many personal stories, in print, online, on NPR and PBS. She has appeared at the Moth, and teaches the art of memoir writing around the country. Read her memoir piece, “Bad Memorial Day,” in Cagibi Issue 3.
Poet and memoirist Nick Flynn has worked as a ship’s captain, an electrician, and as a case-worker with homeless adults. His most recent book is My Feelings, a collection of poems. In 2019, two new books will appear: Stay, a collection of collaborations and writings, as well as I Will Destroy You, a collection of poems. He is also the author of three memoirs, including Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, which won the PEN/Martha Albrand Award and was adapted to film as Being Flynn. His work has been translated into fifteen languages.
This October, join a small group of writers for a long weekend of dedicated writing time and workshops under the spell of Hudson Valley’s spectacular autumn.
