TALKABOUT: Charlie Quimby

Join TalkAbout host, Julie Landsman, as she welcomes Charlie Quimby to the gallery for a conversation.

The old entertainment adage tells writers, “if you want to send a message, call Western Union.” Charlie Quimby’s first novel, MONUMENT ROAD, grew out of his experiences with family members' suicides, and he is at work on a second novel in which homelessness plays a central role. Come hear how one writer balances his concern for social issues with the demands of fiction to reach broad audiences of readers.

MONUMENT Road, has received several honors and recognitions. Charlie is a native Coloradan who has spent most of his life in Minnesota after studying at Carleton College.

He is a co-author of Planning to Stay, a guide for how to assess your community and take control of its development. Since 2004, he’s blogged about culture and politics at Across the Great Divide and has served as a communications fellow with Growth & Justice.
