Writer's Voice Presents Joan Frank, 9/25, 7:30pm

Joan Frank is the author of five books of fiction and a book of collected essays, Because You Have To: A Writing Life (Notre Dame), which won the Silver ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award.

Frank’s latest novel, Make it Stay (Permanent Press), won the Dana Portfolio Award and was called both “masterly” by the San Francisco Chronicle and “a stylistic tour de force” by the Cambridge Review. Her most recent story collection, In Envy Country (Notre Dame), won the Richard Sullivan Prize in Fiction, the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award, and was named a finalist for the California Book Award.

Frank is a MacDowell Colony Fellow, and the recipient of many grants and awards. She has taught the short story at San Francisco State College, and is a book critic for the San Francisco Chronicle Book Review. Visit her at www.joanfrank.org.
