All Levels | If we’re sexy, vulnerable, and detailed in the accounts of our private lives, imagine what happens when we intend someone to read our work? We will study one of the masters of the diary form, Anaïs Nin, by reading Volume I of her diary (1931-1934), which encompasses her affair with Henry Miller and his wife, June. In addition to reading Volume I, expect to practice methods of diary keeping in the style of Nin and making some entries public. All students in reading classes will receive a book club discount on the instructor’s reading list at the Elliott Bay Book Co.
