Kidder on “Another Set of Eyes”

good prosePulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy Kidder will present “Another Set of Eyes” at Boston College on Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. in Gasson Hall, room 100. Kidder is the author of HouseAmong SchoolchildrenOld FriendsHome Town, My DetachmentStrength in What Remains, Mountains Beyond Mountains and The Soul of a New Machine, which won a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. His newest book, Good Prose, is about creating good nonfiction as well as the 40-year association between Kidder and editor Richard Todd, who co-authors Good Prose. From the publisher: “Kidder and Todd draw candidly, sometimes comically, on their own experience—their mistakes as well as accomplishments—to demonstrate the pragmatic ways in which creative problems get solved…They talk about narrative strategies (and about how to find a story, sometimes in surprising places), about the ethical challenges of nonfiction, and about the realities of making a living as a writer.” Sponsor: Lowell Humanities Series | Video of Kidder and Dr. Paul Farmer, the subject of Mountains Beyond Mountains, at Boston College in 2004.
