I wrote a piece about the Joan Didion estate-auction in Hudson.

Ten days ago, I was leading a writing workshop for faculty at the college where I teach. I was preaching the importance of devising writing prompts that take you out into the world. The discoveries you make become material for writing.

A day later, a friend who had participated in my workshop sent me a link to the Joan Didion estate sale that was coming up for auction. My friend texted: Who will walk away with Joan Didion’s sunglasses?
