Body of Correspondence: Finding Connections Through Letters
with Ivan Coyote, Brian Francis, and Vinh Nguyen
Writing, at its core, is a tool for communication. Can the communication itself create story?
Join Vinh Nguyen as he talks to Ivan Coyote, author of Care Of, about how they connected with their fans by answering letters, Facebook messages and emails they collected over the years. Ivan is joined by Brian Francis, who wrote about responding to thirteen replies to a personal ad placed almost thirty years ago in his book Missed Connections. Join us for an exploration in finding connection through correspondence and discover how these writers changed by reaching out to strangers.
