Novelist Victoria Zackheim to Lecture on Oct. 11

Mon, 17 September, 2012 at 2:13 pm
Freelance writer, editor, and novelist Victoria Zackheim will speak in the Main Theater on Thursday, Oct. 11 from 11 a.m. to noon.

Zackheim is author of the Bone Weaver, a novel, and the editor of five anthologies including The Other Woman, which was on the national bestseller list in Canada for several weeks. 

Her presentation at Cañada is based on her latest novel,  Exit Laughing: How Humor Takes the Sting Out of Death. This is more than a collection of 24 personal stories, written by some of our country’s finest authors, on the subject of death and humor. It’s a reminder that all of us approach “the end” in very different ways.

Faculty are encouraged to bring their students to this event. Sample essays are available from the book on Google Books.
