Inside the Writers house brings you into the homes, offices, and writing rooms of acclaimed authors (via video chat) for an inside eye on their working life and a level of intimacy often lacking in more formal settings. Visits are conversational, molded by audience questions, and may include readings and person tours. Open to the public.
