Leslie Leyland Fields

Covenant College is pleased to present a reading by Leslie Leyland Fields on Thursday, February 26, 2009, 7:00-8:30 pm in the Rymer Hall Caudle Room.

 

The public is invited to attend free of charge.

 

Leslie Leyland Fields is the award-winning author of several nonfiction books, including Surviving the Island of Grace, Surprise Child, and her newest book, Parenting Is Your Highest Calling . . . And Eight Other Myths that Trap Us in Worry and Guilt.  Her work has been published in Atlantic Monthly, Image, Christianity Today, and other publications.  She teaches for Seattle Pacific University's MFA program and lives on Kodiak Island, Alaska, where she and her family run a salmon fishing business.

 

This and previous visits by Ms. Fields to Covenant are made possible by a generous grant from an anonymous Covenant College alumnus in honor of Dr. Nick Barker, retired professor of English and former vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty.
