You Can't Go Home Again - Virtual Program

You Can't Go Home Again - Virtual Program

As impactful as setting can be on a short story, novel, memoir, or autobiography, the setting we know best is our hometown. It’s where we learned to ride a bike, where we made our first friends, the place we couldn’t wait to escape and the place we love to go back to. There’s a reason high schools and colleges call reunion weekends “homecoming” because where we grew up has a special place in our memory and hearts. Working from the author’s perspective of her own novelization of Herndon, Virginia, Dr. Whitener explores the details authors include and the ones we leave out when writing about our hometown. Get her novel that takes place in Herndon by clicking here. Cosponsored by the Fairfax Library Foundation. Adults. (R)
