The writer's duty according to Ursula K Le Guin

I have just learned that the great writer Ursula K Le Guin passed away at the age of 88. A prolific author she penned 20 novels, 12 books of poetry, hundreds of short stories and 13 children's books. Her books were translated into 40 languages and she sold millions of copies around the globe. Here is how Ursula K Le Guin described the true work of a writer.

"The writer's pleasant duty is to ply the reader's imagination with the best and purest nourishment that it can absorb."

Check out the site for information on our upcoming programs. This spring we will be presenting programs on writing an Edward R. Murrow style "This I Believe" essay and a program on writing historical fiction in conjunction with Fort Ligonier.

Thanks for reading this post.
