Bonnie Friedman’s essays tend to make their way into a lot of “Best of…” anthologies. She has been in such anthologies as The Best American Movie Writing, The Best Writing on Writing, The Best Spiritual Writing, and The Best of The Oprah Magazine. Her first book, Envy, Fear, Distraction, and Other Dilemmas of the Writer’s Life as a Village Voice bestseller.

Friedman, who currently teaches Creative Nonfiction in the MFA program at the University of North Texas, will read new work at the WordSpace Salon on Thursday, September 12. To sample her writing, check out this essay published on Shambhala Sun — and find out why this blog post has the title it does.

The WordSpace Salon begins at 7:00 PM. Salons are free to WordSpace members and $10 for nonmembers.  Refreshments will be served. (What an excellent time to join WordSpace. Given the free salons and discounted tickets to Kessler Theater events, you make back you $35 membership in just a few months.)

Since salons are held in private homes, we do not publish the address until guests  RSVP at 214-838-3554 or via email at
