Joyce Maynard with Katherine Maxfield
Montalvo Arts Center continues its Montalvo Writers Series with a literary luncheon with author/journalist Joyce Maynard. The moderator of the conversation will be Katherine Maxfield. Known for her friendly yet probing style that encourages writers to reveal their thought processes and creative practices, Maxfield will discuss Maynard's career and her most recent publication, The Best of Us. A life-affirming reflection on coming to understand true love through the experience of loss, The Best of Us follows the 19-month battle that Maynard and her husband endured as he fought pancreatic cancer.
