Zoom Cafe with Lynn Miller & Elisabeth McKetta

Zoom Cafe with Novelists Miller & McKetta: 

Drop in for Friday morning coffee and writing talk with long-time collaborators Lynn Miller (The Unmasking, 2020) and Elisabeth McKetta (She Never Told Me About the Ocean, 2021). Miller and McKetta will read from their novels, answer readers’ questions, and discuss their 15-year-long collaboration as book critique partners. 

About Lynn: Lynn C. Miller is the author of four novels, including The Day After Death (UNM Press) and Death of a Department Chair. A former university professor, she has performed a number of solo performance pieces about Edith Wharton, Gertrude Stein, Katherine Anne Porter, and Victoria Woodhull.

“The Unmasking is smart, irreverent, and wickedly tender. Miller displays an unerring eye for contemporary American foibles, inside and outside academic life, using a classic murder mystery to expose the truth to her characters and the reader. Not for a minute does The Unmasking lose its perfect pitch or its pacing. Don't skip a page, don't skip a paragraph—it will all be covered on the final exam.”—Jesse Lee Kercheval, author of My Life as a Silent Movie: A Novel

About Elisabeth: Elisabeth Sharp McKetta teaches writing for Harvard Extension School and Oxford Department for Continuing Education. She is the author of nine books, including the novel She Never Told Me About the Ocean. She delivered the 2019 TEDx talk “Live Like a Poem.”

“She Never Told Me About the Ocean is a tidal and intimate book, brimming over with wonders and terrors and the watery echoes that bind generations of women. What a pleasure this book is from start to finish. McKetta maps the dark portals through which her women continuously reinvent themselves, newborn at every age.” ―Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia! and Orange World
