Becoming a Writer

Our luncheon speaker is Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey, author of the enormously popular A Woman of Independent Means (the basis for a major motion picture starring Jill Clayburgh) and Life Sentences, discussing her personal writing evolution.
Los Angeles Times: “At an age when far too many people are writing far too much about far too little and usually doing it badly, a novel comes along to restore our faith in language and good conscience.”
