Front Page with Charlotte Matthews

June 17, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Wednesday, June 17th
6:00pm – 7:00pm

All alumni, parents, and friends are invited to spend an evening virtually with Charlotte Matthews (CLAS ’88), a professor in UVA’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies.

DC Hoos: Front Page presents professor/author Charlotte Matthews as she offers insights into how writing can help us navigate the challenging times we now face. Charlotte, a poet and memoirist, will read, discuss, and invite comments from participants on how the written word can help us grapple with bewilderment.

The event will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17th. We highly encourage you to sign in virtually at 5:50 p.m. because you will not want to miss a single moment of this program!

Matthews teaches memoir writing and recently published her own memoir, “Comes with Furniture and People”. Set in Washington, DC, “Comes with Furniture and People” describes sleepovers with Amy Carter, waiting for Gorbachev to drive by in a motorcade, and the glorious peal of The National Cathedral bells floating over her neighborhood.

Zoom information to join will be emailed to registrants before the event.
