My longtime pal, fellow Liars Club member, and wonderful writer, Kelly Simmons invades the Oddcast this week to talk about her new book, about how Nantucket inspired it, and how to persevere with your writing even during those times when you can’t buy a vowel.
Philadelphia’s Solomon Jones on the Oddcast
Dennis Tafoya and Edward Pettit: Writing & Books & Mystery
This week’s Oddcast, the last recorded at the Philadelphia Writers Conference, features Liars Club member, novelist Dennis Tafoya, author of such tremendously well-wrought novels as The Wolves of Fairmount Park and The Poor Boy’s Game; and Liars Club associate, Edward Pettit, Philadelphia’s specialist on Edgar Allan Poe, and now programming director for the Rosenbach (pronounced “Ro’-sen-back“, which everybody gets wrong) Museum, where you can see original manuscripts and materials by Bram Stoker (they have “Dracula” in manuscript form no less) and Joyce and even Maurice Sendak. A freeform discussion about writing and books and mystery.
