The Boston Authors Project Opening Reception

No Longer Enrolling

Class Description

Join us at the opening reception for GrubStreet’s new permanent collection by portrait photographer Sharona Jacobs. There will be snacks, drinks, and great company. Free and open to the public.

Of the project, Sharona says: "Writers are the perfect muse; they have a rich inner world, excel at communicating, and have interesting and varied life experiences to draw upon. The Boston Authors Project developed organically with GrubStreet; I had been photographing writers as a personal project for several months when I noticed, again and again, that a creative writer I was photographing was involved with GrubStreet as a teacher or student. Collaborating with such a great hub of fantastic writers has been a portrait photographer's dream come true."

Featuring photographs of and writing by:
  • Steve Almond
  • Rita Zoey Chin
  • Nicole Terez Dutton
  • Regie Gibson
  • Anthony James
  • Pablo Medina
  • Rishi Reddi
  • Jane Roper
  • Mako Yoshikawa
