Natalie Goldberg: Writing Down the Bones

November 14, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST


Author Natalie Goldberg in conversation with Easton Book Festival president Melba Tolliver (who is also one of Natalie’s students!)
Natalie Goldberg is the author of fifteen books, including Writing Down the Bones (Shambhala, 1986), which has sold over one million copies, has been translated into fourteen languages, and started a revolution in the way we practice writing in this country.
She recently co-edited a collection of talks by revered zen teacher Katherine Thanas, The Truth of This Life (Shambhala, 2018). In her latest memoir Let the Whole Thundering World Come Home(Shambhala, 2018), she shares her experience with cancer grounded in her practice of zen and writing. Her other books include The Great Spring: Writing, Zen, and This Zigzag Life (Shambhala, 2016), the novel Banana Rose (Bantam, 1995), and the beloved Long Quiet Highway: Waking Up in America, a memoir about her zen teacher Katagiri Roshi.
For more than forty years Natalie has practiced zen and taught seminars in writing as a practice.
