BC alumna Lynne Spigelmire Viti has published her first short story collection, titled Going Too Fast (Finishing Line Press, 2020). Viti presents interlocking stories of women coming of age in the 1960s and 1970s in Baltimore and New York, as they establish their identities in a turbulent world, and on women in middle age coping with wrenching breakups and divorce, death of parents, and loss of old friendships. Viti’s previous works include the poetry collections The Glamorganshire Bible and Baltimore Girls. Viti is a emerita lecturer in the Writing Program at Wellesley College. She earned both a PhD in English and a law degree from Boston College.
