Scribulator’s Guild, a Nonfiction Salon with special guest Helen Thorpe

“The Scribulator’s Guild” is a celebration of narrative nonfiction hosted by Lighthouse faculty member Joel Warner. The program includes an in-depth interview with a guest writer or author about their craft, lots of writerly mingling, and of course free beer and wine. Special guest for this salon will be Helen Thorpe, the celebrated Denver journalist whose award-winning writing has been published in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Texas Monthly, and 5280. Helen’s first book, Just Like Us: The True Story of Four Mexican Girls Coming of Age in America, won the 2009 Colorado Book Award, and her second book, Soldier Girls: The Battles of Three Women at Home and at War, was named 2014 nonfiction book of the year by TIME magazine. Helen will share how she crafts her intimate, detailed works of literary journalism.
